A little farther south, a patchwork of homes in various stages of improvement characterizes the Cooper, Howe, and Hiawatha neighborhoods. Houses in the blocks closest to the river have been upgraded substantially, and more modest homes farther back are also being renovated on a block-by-block basis. At the south end of Hiawatha, Minnehaha Parkway boasts larger homes with decorative details, but for architecturally unique dream-houses, look to the river and shop along Edmund Boulevard. Much of Longfellow's housing is deemed worthy of rehabilitation but may fall short of meeting the needs of modem families. Over half the houses in these neighborhoods are bungalows-two-bedroom, one-bath, single-story houses with built-in cabinets and expansion attics. Two-story, four-square houses built in the 1920s are the second-most predominant style. The renovation of existing homes in this neighborhood is so popular that the Longfellow community commissioned a book, The Longfellow Plan book: Remodeling Plans for Bungalows and Other Small Urban Homes, which contains ideas for updating the area's predominant housing types. Plans have been reviewed and approved by the Minneapolis Inspections Division. The book can be purchased from the Longfellow Community Council for Longfellow residents. A number of additional initiatives are being employed to improve these neighborhoods. Longfellow United for Youth and Families (LUYF), 612-721-7811, coordinates an after-school tutoring program and employs young people to remove graffiti. There are also active block patrols formed in response to safety concerns.
