The Gateway

I have always been extremely interested in Gateway Park that existed where Hennepin, Nicollet, and Washington Avenues converged in the Gateway District. This park served as the center of Minneapolis until the Urban Renewal Act did away with it and many buildings in the area starting in 1958. It is a shame that we lost so many buildings in this area and even more shameful that we displaced a group of people because they were "undesirable." 

Here are some pictures of Gateway Park and the area in it's day:
