Nicollet Island, Minneapolis, MN

Pretty mansards and garages on Nicollet Island in the Twin Cities.  Nicollet Island is a tiny neighborhood island in the middle of the Mississippi.  I can't think of any Mississippi River island near St. Louis with houses.  The closest "island" we have here in St. Louis must be Bloody Island which I think is now one of the peers of the Poplar Street Bridge.  And I think Chouteau Island is a green way of some type.  In conclusion, Nicollet Island = super handsome mansards.

Way Homer

Homer Street in St. Paul, MN.

I hear the word Homer and I think of one of my favorite scenes from Raising Arizona.

Glen: Shit, man, think about it! I guess it's what they call a "way homer."
H.I.: Why's that?
Glen: 'Cause you only get it on the way home.
H.I.: I'm already home, Glen.

I'm back home but I have plenty of mansards to share from my twin cities trip.
