convenient but sleepy

nice location, right across the river from highland park, close to all major highways and light rail and close to some great parks- the falls, the lakes, etc. so thats all good. i would advise moving closer to greater longfellow though. hiawatha aroudn 46th and hiawatha ave feels kind of run down. not many places to shop or hang out, messy industrial stuff on hiawatha is unsightly, lots of storage warehouses that people live out of i think and the people just seem unfriendly. everyone has this weird run down look to them. lots of older women walking their tiny dogs and smoking. feels like a lot of the neighborhood is made up of older white people who want to get away from diversity in south mpls..

Not bad, not bad

Pros: Not a bad neighborhood at all, affordable, a good mix of people, relatively low crime rate (garage break in seems to be the most common) and a generally laid back vibe. Not a whole lot of great stuff as far as business or places to hang out as this is a highly residential neighborhood. Of course you have the Falls and the great park surrounding it. Always fun! Some really fun thrift shops on Minnehaha and Ford Parkway just across the river. More to do on the other side of Hiawatha and if you like living close to more quiet Minneapolis lakes you can't beat the distance to Nokomis and Hiawatha. I have a theory that with the highly gentrified Uptown and now NE you will get more interest building in Longfellow and this neighborhood (for those looking to avoid the snobs and hipsters). Cons: Again, a really quiet vibe and not a whole lot of community involvement in Hiawatha. I moved from a neighborhood that had a lot more involvement and people that were generally more approachable, I would say that people are way more keep to themselves and guarded here. The closer you live to Hiawatha the trashier things kind of look too, a lot of garbage and random stuff around in some places, some places just feel "dirty", especially around 46th and Hiawatha.
