Twin cities—Minnesota

  1. 1. Twin Cities—Minnesota<br />It all starts with asking—How can I help?<br />Presented by:<br />John Mazzara<br />612-386-7027<br />john@johnmazzara.com<br />
  2. 2. Minneapolis and Saint Paul<br />Minneapolis and Saint Paul are the Twin Cities of Minnesota.<br />They are the center of the state’s industry because of its large population that is estimated to be 2,968,805 in 2000 and is still growing.<br />Local Minnesotans usually refer to the twin cities as “The Cities”.<br />
  3. 3. Minneapolis and Saint Paul<br />The two cities are independent municipalities with individual borders and are somewhat distinct from each other. <br />Saint Paul is the capital of the state likened to a European city with nice neighborhoods, and a vast collection of well preserved late-Victorian architecture.<br />Minneapolis is the largest city of the state and somewhat newer, with modern skyscrapers and broad streets. <br />
  4. 4. Minneapolis and Saint Paul<br />The two cities form the 15-county Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan statistical area.<br />The Twin Cities combined contribute nearly two-thirds of Minnesota’s gross state product, which makes it an incredibly profitable area to build a career in any profession. <br />
  5. 5. In 1872, Minnesota only had two cities then which were Saint Paul and Minneapolis. The people needed to be reminded that there were already two cities that existed so they started calling the first two cities as Dual Cities which evolved to Twin Cities.<br />Twin Cities – History<br />
  6. 6. Twin Cities – History<br />Natural geography played a role in the settlement and development of the two cities. <br />Saint Paul grew up around Lambert's Landing, the last place to unload boats coming upriver at an easily accessible point. <br />Roughly seven miles downstream from Saint Anthony Falls, the geographic feature that, due to the value of its immense water power for industry, defined the location of Minneapolis and its prominence as the Mill City. <br />
  7. 7. Twin Cities – History<br />St. Paul and Minneapolis in particular went through some massive urban renewal projects in the post-World War II era, so a vast number of buildings are now lost to history. <br />Some of the larger and harder to demolish structures have survived. In fact, the area might be signified more by bridges than buildings.<br />
  8. 8. Saint Paul<br />Saint Paul, despite being the capital city of Minnesota, provides a scenic and historic home to residents, opposite to the typical hustle and bustle of cities. <br />The city gives a neighborhood and friendly feel, which makes it distinct from its sister city, Minneapolis. <br />The comfort and familiarity which the city provides makes it very relatable to people in all walks of life, which is why so many become long time residents of this city.<br />
  9. 9. Minneapolis<br />Minneapolis, the largest city in Minnesota, is a quick-paced area filled with skyscrapers and modern architecture. <br />Minneapolis is also center to economical development in the state of Minnesota. It is the base to big Minnesotan companies such as Target, U.S. Bancorp and Medtronic. <br />
  10. 10. Twin Cities – A Destination<br />The Twin Cities are home to a lot of iconic locations and events in Minnesota. <br />Saint Paul has become a major destination in the country during winter because of its well-known Saint Paul Winter Carnival. <br />The winter carnival showcases majestic ice sculptures, an annual treasure hunt, winter foods and activities, and an extravagant ice palace. <br />
  11. 11. While Minneapolis houses destinations for art and nature, comprising of the Chain of Lakes, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Walker Art Gallery.<br />Minneapolis, the city of lakes, is surrounded by scenic byways made up by the Chain of Lakes that circle the city. It is connected with pathways for biking, walking and running for the outdoorsy types and also provides space for fishing, picnicking, boating and ice skating in the winter.<br />The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is the largest art museum in the city with 100,000 pieces in its permanent collection while the Walker Art Center houses one of the nation's "big five" modern art collections.<br />Twin Cities – A Destination<br />
