If I do end up working at Mainframe Ops (like I posted about in my obscurity thread), I would be moving to Minneapolis and working downtown, on 2nd Ave between 3rd and Washington.
What are the nicest residential neighborhoods nearest to this location? I would get an efficiency for the first few months probably, before getting a slightly bigger place, but I'm so unhappy with the scuzziness of my current neighborhood (near Oakland CA) that I have decided I will spend what I need to in order to live in a place that doesn't make me grimace every time I begin my day.
I also don't like long commutes, so if I can stay in the city that would be awesome.
Any Minneapolitans on the board who can help me out with this?
