|[The mystery sidewalk, with a lovely askew desire path.]|
That said, this sidewalk wasn't completely difficult, certainly not as challenging as Mystery Sidewalk #6. Guesses included:
"50th and France"
"East River Road"
and "Lake Calhoun"
Could it be? Note the lengthy topographic slant, certainly rarity in the Twin Cities. Note also the lights in the distance, betokening some sort of dense node. What is it? A mall? Note also that I live nowhere near Minneapolis, and am a profoundly lazy person.
Yes, those are the distant lights of downtown Saint Paul. Dutiful reader and long-time Saint Paul West Ender Adam Yust was the first to correctly ID the spot, sending me an email that simply said:
Wabasha St, west side
Correct! Not only is this spot less than a mile from my apartment, it's less than a 1/4 mile from Name That Sidewalk #4, the spot at the top of the no-longer-extant "green stairs."
Better luck next time!
