The western "spine" of this residential neighborhood at the city's southeastern edge is the Hiawatha Light Rail line, completed in 2004, and running from the Mall of America in the southern suburb of Bloomington to the new Twins Stadium, Target Field. Longfellow is a quiet neighborhood full of small single-family homes, many of them Craftsman-style bungalows dating from the 1920s; some have been remodeled by the city's cohort of young residential architects. It's also home to the ornate Riverview Theater, one of the city's favorite second-run and art-film showplaces, and plenty of independently owned eateries and cafes.
