The "Hawthorne Annex" Features Broadway Pizza, Luxury Condos
If you're totally into neighborhood politics and culture, then you develop a certain feeling for what is the "norm" of your neighborhood, versus what is an anomaly. For example: Homewood mansion district? Within the Willard Hay neighborhood, this is an anomaly.
Well, the Hawthorne Neighborhood has its own anomaly. On the other side of the highway, there is a section of the neighborhood which has, among other things,...
...luxury condos with riverfront views. These condos are just a short distance--walking distance, really--from the popular Broadway Pizza restaurant.
This section of the neighborhood--our housing director, Jeff Skrenes, once dubbed it the "Hawthorne Annex"--is cut off from the rest of Hawthorne by the highway. Though the Mississippi is OFFICIALLY one of the boundaries of our neighborhood, for all practical purposes Interstate 94 is really the boundary. But then there's the "Hawthorne Annex," sitting between I-94 and the river.
Pictured above are the luxury condos of the Hawthorne Neighborhood, with riverfront views.
Ah, now that's North Minneapolis living!
