2700 Morgan Ave. N. Whorehouse Is Now As Quiet As A Mouse House...

Photo and blog post by John Hoff

Yesterday, I attended a cookout on the Jordan Pond with great friends and neighbors, and I took the time to inquire what was up with 2700 Morgan Ave. N., which used to be the nastiest whorehouse in North Minneapolis. (In fact, the reputation of the building lives on in legend, as the City Pages referenced a headline about the whorehouse at "2700" while naming Johnny Northside Dot Com the No. 1 blog in the Twin Cities, click here)

Well, according to nice neighbors in a position to know, NOTHING is currently happening with 2700 Morgan Ave. N. It is as peaceful as can be, awaiting its fate from the Backhoe of Doom. Sure, there was some graffiti--I snapped a picture so I could make a 311 report by email, which I submitted just a moment ago--but other than that, the furor around 2700 Morgan Ave. N. has died down, and no-accounts have learned to stop breaking inside because they'll be thrown out, over and over.

As somebody commented yesterday at the Jordan Pond barbeque--life around the Jordan Pond is getting better every year. "The Pond" is a little piece of paradise and--wonder of wonders!--there are actually houses for sale in that area.

Here's the 311 reference for that graffiti report.

Thanks for calling that one in. I was going to email on this one but looks like you beat me to it. Is it beneficial for all of use to open individual cases?

Oh, you were going to call that in, huh?

And who are you, anyway? Do you even live in North Minneapolis?

Second reference number, by the way:

CM Samuals says that it is a good idea to put a string of 311 calls together on problem properties. So yes, please make your own call.

John beat you to it, huh? Well what the heck were you doing for the 3 weeks it's been up there while John has been preoccupied with other things?

You're a joke "patrick". You should go play with your alter egos "shamika" and "patricia" and reminisce about your prior alter egos "James Washington" "Dontrell" "Eloise" etc etc. You aren't tricking anybody you loser.
