“West of FIrst Avenue DOwntown”
“Twin Cities Apartment Developers Offer Amenities for Fido.”
—Star Tribune (2/7/14)
Manhattan has Soho — short for, “SOuth of HOuston Street” (not to mention Tribeca, Nolita, etc.).
There’s the “Dumbo” neighborhood in Brooklyn (“DOwn Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass”).
Even Denver has a hip, “truncated/acronym” neighborhood: “LoDo,” short for LOwer DOwntown.
Just West of Up-and-Coming “ROVER”
So naturally, my first thought when I saw the Star Tribune headline above was that someone was floating a new name for the “North Loop,” one of Minneapolis’ hottest downtown neighborhoods.
They were . . . um, referring to man’s best friend.
P.S.: Looking for the Twin Cities’ biggest off-leash dog park? (unofficially, that is, and only in the Winter).
