Minneapolis-St. Paul: People, Place, and Public Life (Google eBook)
The Twin Cities are an outstanding place to live, work, play, and participate in an active civic life. Lakes, extensive Parklands, natural preserves, and the urban forest play a large role in drawing people to the Twin Cities and keeping them here.
Enhanced with maps, photographs, and graphs, Minneapolis-St. Paul is the most comprehensive, up-to-date book available on the metro area and its unique social, economic, political, and physical environment. This impressive and entertaining compilation of information will be useful for present and prospective residents of the Twin Cities, real-estate brokers and developers, local government officials, city planners, public-relations representatives, students of urban geography and sociology and land-use planners.
