My parents and grandparents have quite a few stories about the flood. Most of the parks around Rapid Creek used to be houses and businesses, but, obviously those can't be built within a certain distance of the creek anymore.

Late 90's. Building in downtown began to increase. Despite less people, vibrancy and tourism have grown.

Uhhh, not really, mostly it's the stupid suburbs, the city itself is actually in my opinion much more modest and filled with much more reasonable people..

The 1980's, modern Minneapolis was born out of music - Prince and punk rock. This was also the time when Minneapolis went from being a pleasant progressive but generic regional center to a real place.

I grew up in Preston Hollow; wasn't modest then, isn't modest now. Most areas in the wide central corridor north of downtown aren't modest at all. West of Webb Chapel and east of Skillman, maybe.
