Whittier, Minneapolis

'''Whittier''' is a neighborhood in the U.S. city (United States cities) of Minneapolis, Minnesota, bounded by Franklin Avenue on the north, Interstate 35W (Interstate 35W (Minnesota)) on the east, Lake Street (Lake Street (Minneapolis)) on the south, and Lyndale Avenue on the west. It is known for many diverse restaurants, coffee shops and Asian markets, especially along Nicollet Avenue ("Eat Street"). The neighborhood is also home to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and the Children's Theatre Company.

While the neighborhood is officially part of the greater Powderhorn community (Powderhorn, Minneapolis), it is separated from those areas by Interstate 35W, and also lies further north than the rest of the community area. Most of Powderhorn is east of Interstate 35W and south of Lake Street; the Whittier neighborhood is west of I-35W and north of Lake Street. Whittier is often associated with adjacent neighborhoods, such as Lowry Hill East (Lowry Hill East, Minneapolis) in the Calhoun-Isles community (Calhoun Isles, Minneapolis) to the west and Stevens Square (Stevens Square, Minneapolis) neighborhood in the Central community (Central, Minneapolis) to the north.
