I find the area very clean in some places very dirty in others (the north). Thanks for your inputs.

Care to give more insight into what you mean by dirty? I'm sure there are plenty of northsiders than would beg to differ as they live in clean, northern neighborhoods that are probably as immaculate as southwest Minneapolis.

Minneapolis in general is a very clean city.

Maybe the OP and "the Judge" missed the news that a .25mi-wide tornado recently made a 4 mile-long trip journey through the northside, leaving massive destruction/debris in its wake- is this what you mean when you say 'it's dirty' "over North"?. If so, please excuse our mess a-holes!

The 'nado wasn't missed, I was over north when it hit. Your head is in the sand if you don't think north side residents (Victory not included) litter more frequently, than say, SW residents. Again, even grandmas litter on the north side.

I don't think many parts of the city are too dirty. Perhaps the north side and some parts near industrial wastelands in NE Mpls and NW St. Paul, and maybe some suburbs, but honestly compared to other cities/metros our city in incredibly clean, which is SO refreshing! I find adjusting to non-clean cities very very difficult!

This post is spot on. While the Twin Cities isn't quite as immaculate as it was when I moved here over 20 years ago (which is to be expected given the population increase in that time), the entire metropolitan region as a whole is MUCH cleaner than virtually any other city/area I've lived in or visited (and there have been a number).

I find extremes. Some places are as spick and span as an upscale suburb. Other places could be a trailer park. I'm guessing there are parts full of people with no sense of what Minneapolis has been over the decades. Other places mostly populated by people who are from the old Minneapolis or are children whose parents model high expectations. Drive through some parts of town and front yards are burnt out mudholes. In another town, you might use "slum", but some like to believe we don't have slums.
