Minneapolis Landmark for Monopoly Board

Hasbro is coming out with a “Here & Now” edition of Monopoly, using landmarks from today’s America. You can vote for the best landmark from a number of cities around the country.

Minneapolis is one of the cities, and, sadly, the Mall of America is winning. The Stone Arch Bridge and Summit Avenue are the other options. As of right now, MOA has 72%, Stone Arch Bridge has 18%, and Summit Ave has 10%. I mean, maybe you think that the MOA is an appropriate representation of the TC for a Monopoly board. I can’t tell you how to vote.

But I can tell you that you can vote once a day.

    I voted for the Stone Arch Bridge.

    Who decided who the nominees were?

    Stone Arch Bridge all the way. Notice they screwed up the picture? Thats the Central Ave bridge they show.

    I’ve been here over three years now and have never heard of that bridge. I looked it up, read the history and still don’t see why it should define the city. Only in Minneapolis would we think a river bridge equals the St. Louis Arch.

    I wish I could vote for the large Grain Belt billboard downtown.

    If you’ve lived here for three years and never even heard of the Stone Arch Bridge, you’re just not paying attention.

    The part about how it defines the city is the part where it says it was built to move folks and stuff across the Mississippi. You know, with the mills right there, which is how this city came to be a city in the first place.

    But I guess that’s too much history compared to the Mall of America. And what purpose does the Gateway Arch serve, besides just standing there and looking pretty?

    I think its funny that they have Minneapolis landmarks and the Stone Arch Bridge is the only one actually in Minneapolis, and its picture is wrong.
