*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Winter 
If we were to imagine the twin cities personified, we would liken Minneapolis to a vigorous rustic beauty in short skirts; while St. Paul we would describe as a fashionable marriagable urban miss, a trifle stunted and lacking color and plumpness, but with more style and worldly grace than her sister. As to which should have the preference, there will be views as different as the two towns. There are those who prefer hard-paved, bustling streets, faced by ranks of city stores, pressed shoulder against shoulder, with here and there huge, massive office towers breathing crowds in and out to choke the narrow sidewalks; and there are others who like better the big, roomy avenues of Minneapolis, even though they hang like too loose clothes against the uneven, shrinking lines of fashionless houses. 

[Harper's Magazine, Capitols of the Northwest, c. 1892.]

While Biggie referred to his "one-room shack" in Bed-Stuy, times have changed: "This three-bedroom plus den/office condominium was renovated a few years ago preserving traditional styling while answering the needs of modern usage," and now the area is referred to as Clinton Hill.
