Artist's Description

Shot with my Canon PowerShot SX20 IS, processed in Dynamic Photo HDR

Stone Arch Bridge – famous for its graceful arches and breathtaking views – defines Minneapolis’ skyline. Railroad baron James J. Hill built the bridge in 1883 to allow for increased movement of people and goods across the Mississippi River. The Stone Arch Bridge spans St. Anthony Falls, and served as a working railroad bridge until 1965.

Today the Stone Arch Bridge is cultural icon, representing the vital role the Mississippi River plays in Minneapolis’ social and economic fabric. The one-of-a-kind landmark made of native granite and limestone, measures 2,176 feet by 28 feet, with 23 arches. It is the only stone arch bridge ever constructed over the Mississippi River.

East Bank is a neighborhood within the larger University community in Minneapolis. It is situated just across the Mississippi River from downtown Minneapolis. The “East Bank” portion of the neighborhood is commonly referred to as a part of Nordeast or Old St. Anthony, as this area was the location of the town of St. Anthony, which was annexed by Minneapolis in 1872. East Hennepin Avenue runs through the middle of the neighborhood, which means it is situated in parts of both Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis. The neighborhood is bounded by Central Avenue, 2nd Avenue NE, and the river. Due to its close proximity to downtown, the area has seen a wave of gentrification in recent years; with shopping complexes and upscale condominiums built in the area.
