The Light Rail
I had not ridden the Hiawatha light rail. I expected it to be relatively clean on the inside, but with a crowd that might be kind of "interesting." I have ridden on the transit system in Toronto, which was kind of cramped, so I expected the Hiawatha light rail to be somewhat like that.
I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and well kept the Hiawatha light rail is. There were people from all walks of life that took the light rail while I was on it. I took the light rail during the daytime on a weekday. It was a very enjoyable experience, and I definitely will take the light rail again.
I believe that the 28th Street station looks like a rugged, durable, yet "outdoorsy," nature area. It's a nice bit of less industrial looking space in and amongst so many warehouses. I feel that this light rail station is an example of sequestration because it is sequestered in and amongst all of the large, industrial warehouse buildings.

my yellow arrow
I would post a yellow arrow at 725 Vineland Place in Minneapolis, off Hennepin Avenue. This is the location of the Guthrie Theater, which currently shares a building with the Walker Arts Center. I am very familiar with this location because my family has had season tickets to the Guthre Theater for 25 years, and I have been attending plays there since I was about 10 years old. The Guthrie Theater will soon be moving into a new building along the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis, near the Mill City Museum.
