Trying to Pay Attention


Steven Date is a neighborhood correspondent for the TC Daily Planet. He likes Twin Cities lakes and parkways, places that have a connection to the past (old buildings, “it happened here” places and personal memories), various neighborhoods and their local culture and atmosphere, neighborhoods that have been transformed by immigrant populations, urban nature centers, many parts of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul — on and on. He also loves to hear about other people’s “special places.” See more of his blog on WordPress. (This blog prevously titled “The 58th Year.”)
