Beautiful Downtown Minneapolis

Bike Cops for Kids had a downtown day before meeting with Michael Ciresi of the Ciresi Foundation so we took some snapshots around town where everyone who visits should. Ofcourse, this is the Mary Tyler Moore statue on Nicollet Mall.

Here's a great shot of downtown from the east side of the Stone Arch Bridge, the 2nd best attractioon in the Minneapolis Parks.

The Guthrie is behind us and we're in Gold Medal Park, looking at the new 35W bridge.

Don't ever try this at home. Officer Mike wishing he failed the Police exam, so he would have ended up with MFD instead.

The newest addition to the safety team in the downtown Mpls Safe Zone. They're called Safety Ambassadors and they work on the livability issues around downtown with the MPD and other partners in the Safe Zone. Here's us and the ambassadors with one of the guys they just diplomatically asked to take a nap somewhere beside Nicollet Mall.

After our meeting with the Bike Cops for Kids funding source, The Ciresi Foundation, Michael Ciresi took a moment to pose for a picture with us.

Officer Mike navigating traffic with a Nicollet Mall shopper, who scolded Mike in front of a large crowd for being so forward.

Here we are on the west side of the Mississippi, on the downtown side of the Stone Arch Bridge with The Mill City Museum and the Guthrie river walk extension in the backround. Photo by Mike Christensen.
