Columbus actually also has a very large Somali population. Also Ethiopians and Eritreans.

I remember that the attacker at OSU last year was Somali.

Agree. I prefer it and Ramsey County over Minneapolis.

The title of the thread said where does it rank among the Midwest. The OP just said which city is it most similar to (which I took to mean all of the US).

I personally prefer Minneapolis, but I do like Ramsey county especially Roseville.

I feel like Minneapolis is defined as a lake city and Saint Paul as a river city. Though both have lakes and rivers.

St. Paul has always given me a Milwaukee vibe.

Michigan (as of 2005) pop = 5,400

the original screenplay for Gran Torino had the story based in Northeast Minneapolis but primarily due to lucrative incentive packages offered by the state of Michigan the Nick Schenk's script was re-written to base the story in Detroit...


Schenk said that sometimes the lines in the movie feel out of place with the Detroit setting; for instance a line about one of Walt's sons asks if Walt still knows a person who has season tickets for Minnesota Vikings games was changed to being about a person with Detroit Lions tickets. Schenk said "They don't sell out in Detroit. And so that bothered me. It seemed really untrue to me.

Except that Milwaukee is twice the size, and more densely populated. Not sure about the vibe, but that's your opinion.

Well, at least compared to Minneapolis. St. Paul is obviously the more blue collar of the two.
