Andy Sturdevant: Since all of our freeways point directly to the downtown central business core, you have five different approaches of the Minneapolis skyline from automobile to consider. A pet argument I’ve had with many friends over the years has been about which approach is the best view of the city. Which best shows off the skyline?

"Hey, look at that. Twin Cities. That’s the IDS Building, the big glass one. Tallest skyscraper in the Midwest — after the uh, Sears, in, uh, Chicago, or John Hancock Building, whatever. You ever been to Minneapolis?" — Carl Showalter, "Fargo" (1996).

My favorite, from the north on 35W. I went to college in Duluth, and I missed Minneapolis every day. So every time I’d drive home, and see the skyline after driving for 2 hours, I’d immediately feel better and know that I was home.
