The Northrop Neighborhood

The City of Minneapolis has over 83 different neighborhoods. Each with its own unique personality and reasons for living there. For today’s post I’m going to focus on the Northrop Neighborhood of South Minneapolis.

A personal favorite of mine the Northrop Neighborhood’s boundaries are 42nd Street to the north, Cedar Avenue to the east, Minnehaha Parkway to the south, and Chicago Avenue to the west.

Close to Minnehaha parkway, access to I-35 and Hwy. 62 and home to so many many cute shops and restaurants this neighborhood is beautiful and vibrant.

The houses are mostly pre-1940s stucco, brick and stone houses. Each one with its own unique character and situated on tree lined streets which adds to the overall charm and walkability of the neighborhood.

A popular little niche within the Northrop Neighborhood is Shenandoah Terrace. It’s filled with the same charming Tudor houses, bungalows and a quaint retail district at 48th and Chicago where 14 Hill and the cutest coffee shop Sovereign Grounds are located.

Here are a few of my favorite houses in the Northrop Neighborhood.
