Longfellow Neighborhood Minneapolis Homes

Located along the Mississippi River in the southern part of the city, the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis offers a quiet, residential setting for the homes of many of the city’s middle-class, professionals.

Because of their location in the southeastern part of the city, the Longfellow neighborhood Minneapolis homes are popular among both commuters to downtown Minneapolis and nearby St. Paul. The history of settlement in the area is defined by the streetcar lines that were laid in the early 1900s. Intended to connect the downtown Minneapolis area to its suburbs, the lines enticed many immigrants living in the densely-populated downtown area to move slightly further out within Minneapolis itself. The result was the development of a neighborhood of single-story, Sears Catalog Homes inhabited by the city’s working class. Since the 1920s, the Longfellow, Minneapolis real estate has been complemented with modest single-family homes.

Larger and more contemporary homes have been constructed recently in the eastern part of the neighborhood, close to the Mississippi River. Today, these homes are largely populated by middle-class professionals. The neighborhood has a dearth of retailers, but the lack of resultant incoming traffic from other parts of the city leads to a quiet and secure suburban area, perfect for families.

Necessities such as grocery stores, banks, and pharmacies can be located along the major thoroughfares of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is also known for its excellent coffee shops, including Riverview Café, Fireroast Mountain Café, Coffee, and Minnehaha Coffee. The area’s parks are among the city’s best, and include the well-known Minnehaha Falls Park. The West River Road is also a popular recreational area, as it features trails used by walkers, bikers, and exercisers.

Cultural attractions are also well-loved by the residents of the city. Among these are included museums such as the Minneapolis American Indian Center, the Walker Art Center, and the Museum of Russian Art, as well as the Minnesota Orchestra and the Hennepin Theatre. Family attractions include the Nickelodeon Universe amusement park at the aquatic park at St. Louis Park. Every member of the family will love living in Longfellow!
