"North Minneapolis Haven"

Lind-Nohanon is one of the far north Minneapolis neighborhoods that sits between the Mississippi River ans the rail yards of the Humboldt Industrial Area. This is a socially tight community where several families have lived for multiple generations, thus everyone in Lind-Bohanon knows each other well. The housing prices are some of the most reasonable in Minneapolis, with houses seldom listed for more than $125,000. The majority of the houses were build during the 1940's and offer slightly more square footage than the prewar bungalows that are found everywhere throughout the city.

Lind- Bohanon is a very safe neighborhood where the long standing residents look out for each other and for suspicious activity. Though this area is far from downtown, those that live here can take I-94 for a relatively short commute on the community's eastern side. People that relocate here, though, prefer living out of the way of the urban crowd, noise and crime, but the neighborhood still has many amenities to offer. The North Mississippi Regional Park is just a hop and a skip away from any local home and Bohanon Park has courts and an ice rink as well as a play ground for children. Lind- Bohanon is highly suggested for those looking not just for a place to live, but a place to stay for generations.

Cons
  • Far from downtown
  • Lack of nightlife

"Affordable living north of the metro"

To the far north of Minneapolis lies the neighborhood of Lind-Bohanon and it is bordered by the city of Brooklyn Center. This small neighborhood has reasonable home prices, especially compared to the rest of the homes found in Minneapolis neighborhoods. Several families of Lind-Bohanon have chosen to make this community their home for two or three generations. This adds to the close-knit family feel of the neighborhood, and is probably one of the reasons why crime is so low in the area. If you want to get a little closer to the city life you just need to hop on Interstate 94 and you are in Downtown.
There is an elementary school within the neighborhood, as well as a private school. Residents of Lind-Bohanon also have great access to several parks and trails. The North Mississippi Regional Park is also home to the Kroening Interpretive Center which gives visitors an in-depth look at the life along and because of the Mississippi River. You can learn about the history of logging, the recreation uses of the river, transportation from a historical perspective, and more in this newly built facility. Bohanon Park offers recreation year-round, including a playground, athletic fields and courts, and an ice hockey rink for good old-fashioned outdoor Minnesota fun!
Pros

  • affordable
