What is Greater Longfellow?
The Greater Longfellow community is made up of four individual neighborhoods: Cooper, Hiawatha, Howe, and Longfellow. Together, these neighborhoods are represented by the Longfellow Community Council. LCC represents over 21,000 residents and more than 400 businesses, making it the largest neighborhood in Minneapolis both by population and geographic extent.
Where is Greater Longfellow?
The Greater Longfellow community is defined by four unique boundaries, which also happen to be some of our community’s greatest amenities.
To the north is the Midtown Greenway, a bicycle and pedestrian trail linking the Mississippi River across South Minneapolis to Uptown and the Chain of Lakes in the west.
Our eastern boundary is the aforementioned Mississippi River. Longfellow is home to a particularly beautiful stretch of the river known as the Mississippi River Gorge.
To the south is Minnehaha Park, the location of Minnehaha Falls, which is why Longfellow is nicknamed the “Neighborhood By the Falls”.
Lastly, to the West is the Hiawatha Light Rail line, which links Longfellow to downtown Minneapolis, MSP International Airport, and the Mall of America.
