Field Trip! Downtown Minneapolis Skyway Walking Tour
IDS Center Fountain
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

Experience downtown Minneapolis' most unique feature with urban geographer, Bill Lindeke. Bill is reprising his famous walking tour through the skyways and talking about the origin and evolution of downtown skyways, including some of the notable (and less-than-notable) architecture. Bill confesses to being a little obsessed with skyway history; he promises to include the place where the idea was hatched (c. 1956), the site of the first skyway (c. 1962), the oldest existing skyway (c. 1963), the longest skyway (c. 1970s?), the most beautiful skyway (c. 1988, arguably) and perhaps even the skyway through the jail!

Prepare for an approximately two mile indoor/outdoor walk starting at the fountain in the IDS Center. We will be walking around downtown through all the different types of skyway environments, from crystalline corridors to parking ramps to retrofitted thoroughfares and all manner of atria. Space is limited, purchase tickets by Friday, March 8.

Bill Lindeke, PhD, is an urban geographer who writes, researches, and gives tours about the Twin Cities. He is the author of numerous articles and publications featuring the urban symbols and civic history of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
