Lake of the Isles
Leafy, prosperous, gifted with--and named for--two of the city's finest lakes, Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles, Calhoun-Isles epitomizes the city's special brand of urban gentility. Strollers, bikers, and dog-walkers circle the lakes; autos make their way gingerly over traffic-calming bumps; and neighbors chat on generous front porches, while the Uptown business district draws Calhoun-Isles residents to its many restaurants, coffee houses, and offbeat retail offerings.

From a raucous burlesque version of a classic TV sketch to Chinese dance to a surreal Dust Bowl fable, here are images of performance at its edgiest.
VideoLine: A Slightly Frantic Google Street View Tour of Minneapolis
Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Capturing hundreds of sequential Street View images from Google Maps using ScreenHunter software, then stitching them together and time-lapsing them in Windows Movie Maker, the peripatetic highway videographer who goes by the YouTube handle eluko79 has created a real-but-virtual photographic journey into the heart of the city.
