NE Minneapolis Stories

We both met here in NE Minneapolis. Davis lived by Good Carma Coffee (good coffee and even better people) and Hannah by Holy Land (Mediterranean food to die for). We both love this area and want to tell its story. Central Avenue, the NE turkeys, so many breweries, and some perfect spots for pictures and videos. Let’s walk through NE Minneapolis stories and culture and find out what it has to offer.

Today

According to Meet Minneapolis, “Northeast’s neighborhood can be divided into two main sections: the Arts district and the Riverfront district.” Both riverfront and arts do a great job of describing what you can encounter when you dive into NE Minneapolis and what is has to offer. The Mississippi and all its majestic glory or the arts of many different cultures circling the streets and people of this beautiful neighborhood. These all contribute to the NE Minneapolis Stories that we know and love.

The Landmarks

Most people when they think about NE Minneapolis first jump to the vibrant brewery scene. Indeed, Bauhaus, Fair State, and Insight to name a few. Each of these places has their own stories that fill the taproom and their beer each time we go to get a drink or visit with friends. The Lowry Bridge over the river is sandwiched between a tiki bar known as Psycho Suzi’s and a Ferris Wheel owned by Betty Danger’s. The Stone Arch Bridge (I’m sensing a bridge theme) connects NE Minneapolis to the heart of Minneapolis and is one of the more beautiful spots not just in Minneapolis, but in the midwest. So many parks positioned perfectly between the urban landscape creating gorgeous photo and video spots for any story.

The culture

Hipsters. Hipsters everywhere. That’s the outsider’s view of NE Minneapolis, and to an extent, they aren’t wrong. The hipsters and their IPA, thrift shops, and bicycle lanes are thriving in NE Minneapolis, but there’s more. Artist’s studios line almost every major street, bringing stories through different media to those who walk through this neighborhood. A market, fair, or expo is happening every weekend, that culminate into the event of the summer, Art-A-Whirl. It’s hard to stay in NE Minneapolis for longer than an hour and not fall in love with all the cultures surrounding you. EspeciallMiy with the food. Central Avenue alone spans the world in the way of restaurants and food. And each has its own story.

What’s your NE Minneapolis Story?

With all of the culture, food, art, and people, it’s hard to find something that bores you here in this part of Minneapolis. Hannah and Davis recently did an engagement session for Afton and Caleb starting in NE Minneapolis and ending in Downtown, walking the whole way. The mixture of urban and nature create such fundamentally different backdrops for any story being told. Each building and Street has its own history. And the nature is vibrant and thriving. And the people are friendly and loving. All the things anyone would need in a living space, photo shoot, or whatever brings you outside. Let us help capture your story in the beautiful neighborhood of NE Minneapolis.
