"Independent neighborhood"

The neighborhood of Northrop, also referred to as Field Regina Northrop (part of a larger community coalition), is in the southern part of Minneapolis and is less than 5 miles from the Downtown area. The residential neighborhood of Northrop consists of smaller homes that were built just before and after WWII, many just 2 or 3 bedrooms. Most people in this area own their homes instead of rent, and the prices here are a little higher than average for these sizes of homes.
Cedar and Chicago Avenues on the boundaries of Northrop help to bring businesses and retail services to the area and make travelling outside of the community less necessary. Banks, restaurants, theatres, automotive services, and retail shops provide residents with a wide variety of services and goods. It does mean that these areas also have higher traffic levels, but access to metro transit is also available.
McRae Park is where residents go for baseball games, tennis matches, or a swim, and there are beautiful gardens and picnic areas. In the winter you can even go for outdoor ice skating – a must have in a fun Minnesota winter. The Recreation Center here also provides activities for kids in the summer and festivals for the entire community.
Pros
  • close retail and dining
Cons
  • pricey homes for the size
