Streetscapes Walking Tour: Skid Row Minneapolis: A tour of the old Gateway District

Take a trip into the historic heart of Minneapolis. Today it’s center of a revitalizing downtown, but once it was home to the largest Skid Row in the upper Midwest. Urban redevelopment swept away nearly 200 buildings in the early 1960s, but enough remains of the old city to enable a journey of imagination into a streetscape of cheap bars, flophouses and rescue missions. Your guide is James Eli Shiffer, a Star Tribune editor and columnist, and the author of the new book, “The King of Skid Row: John Bacich and the Twilight Years of Old Minneapolis.”
