Location: Midtown Greenway & Hiawatha LRT Trail at East 25th Street
At the northwest edge of Longfellow, a small homeless camp has appeared. It has been nicknamed Camp Quarantine because the first inhabitants moved out of shelters to avoid getting COVID-19. According to a recent article in the Star Tribune, they feel safer sleeping in the open air rather than in shelters where social distancing is impossible. While I was there taking this photo from the bike trail, a police officer stopped by to make sure everyone was doing well.
