Like many Minneapolis neighborhoods, Northrop (pdf) was named for its elementary school. Northrop Urban Environmental Learning Center, Grand Rounds Scenic Byway, and McRae Park are located within Northrop proper. Northrop’s borders are: 43rd Street E, Cedar Ave S, Minnehaha Creek, and Chicago Ave.
In the spirit of collaboration, Northrop embraces and utilizes Field School, McKnight Early Childhood Family Development Center, and Hiawatha Golf and Cross Country Ski Park.
