Before I started working at a hotel in downtown Minneapolis, I had little experience wandering around the area. Having to commute daily via the light rail station at Nicollet or the Hawthorne parking ramp near 10th and Hawthorne, I quickly learned what I needed to do to avoid trouble. Despite the ...
