The Cooper neighborhood is located in southeastern Minneapolis. It extends from 38th Avenue South in the west to the Mississippi River in the east and northeast. From north to south, Cooper extends from the 27th street railroad tracks to 34th Street East. The neighborhood's name is derived from an elementary school named after James Fenimore Cooper, an American novelist born in 1789. A mainly residential neighborhood, Cooper's most important commercial corridor is Lake Street. Parks cover the banks of the Mississippi River.

Justin and Lucy were Cooper residents at the time when I started Minneapolis 81. They lived in a beautiful duplex which will be featured on the tour, but, they are now proud homeowners in the Minnehaha neighborhood!
Lucy works at the University of Minnesota in the College of Design as a career professional. Justin just graduated from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and is now job searching and working for a landscaping company. Justin and Lucy love to try new restaurants especially hidden gems around Minneapolis and St. Paul.
