VitaMn article: Take the skyway: A downtown dweller spends 14 days in the skyway system - and survives. This is how I optimistically imagined the future when I was young. The city is a superstructure, and just as rail connects larger areas, skyways do so for local areas. The more internally connected everything is, (i.e. can I avoid going outside) the closer it seems. AIA has a Skyway Videos Contest 24 short videos about the Minneapolis Skyway System. Just don't call them honky tubes.

You may wish to check out the film 'Waydowntown' which follows a group of coworkers who attempt to spend a full month in the system (filmed in Calgary, set in Toronto). The comedy is based in large part on the psychological quirks of such an existence.
