Minneapolis Pro (or ElectroThompson, for the Twitter crowd), send this picture from 2007, of "an unfinished development in a suburb (or satellite city) of Minneapolis, called Ramsey. This picture was taken in 2007, I believe. Nowadays, such scenes are common in this area."

Lately, I find myself struck by the images you folks are sending of housing and commercial developments on ice. Send more, please. I'll try to do something amazing with them.

(Add photos of half-built America to our Flickr pool or Facebook page, Twitpic them and holler out on Twitter or e-mail them. Our moms thank you.)
