Open Streets Minneapolis makes Lyndale lively

Print

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 12, Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis was closed to cars between 22nd Street and 42nd Street. Pedestrians, skateboarders, skaters, and bikers—including Mayor R.T. Rybak—flooded the street to enjoy the day and to support local businesses. It was all part of Open Streets Minneapolis, a new event meant to get people out of their cars, onto the street, and among their neighbors. (Sarah Heuer, a friend of mine and a Daily Planet contributor, was among the event’s organizers.)
