Northrop Minneapolis Real Estate
Located in the Southeastern region of Minneapolis, Northrop is named after the elementary school located in the area. The school itself is named for Cyrus Northrop, once a president of the University of Minnesota.
Northrop is home to a busy business area, a hub which includes restaurants, cafes, banks, a theatre, and many other amenities. Also here is McRae Park, an important landmark constructed in the 1960s which offers a wide variety of recreational activities including ice skating, baseball, volleyball, tennis, playgrounds and a wading pool, as well as beautiful gardens.
Most of the houses in Northrup were built before the 1940s and are two-bedroom homes made out of brick, stone and stucco. Most of these homes have been renovated or updated to meet the needs of today's buyer. There are a handful of larger, multi-family complexes in Northrup.
