Preserve Minneapolis and Spring in Our Steps present
superALLEYfragilistic: a tour of public alleys in North Loop & Downtown West for July's Happy Hour with a Preservationist

Join Preserve Minneapolis for our July Happy Hour with a Preservationist and take part in the kickoff of Cincinnati-based Spring in Our Steps (SiOS) in Minneapolis with a free walking tour of public alley spaces!

We'll meet & start at Corner Coffee(512 N 3rd St), where SiOS co-founderChristian Huelsman will lead us eastward over the Cedar Lake Trail and through a labyrinth of public alleys toward Hennepin Avenue. Select stops on the route will focus on alleys' relationships with historic structures in the Warehouse District, remaining or partially hidden historic infrastructure, and the value that improvements to our alleys can bring to our urban experience.

Spring in Our Steps is a Cincinnati-based 501(c)3 organization, committed to bringing a brighter future to the city’s pedestrian-scaled public spaces–such as public alleys, foot bridges, and hillside stairways–through cleanup, coordinated activities, and comprehensive planning.

We'll regroup at Modist Brewing Company for tasty beverages & conversation about alley preservation!
