Longfellow is a neighborhood within the larger Longfellow community in Minneapolis. It is bounded by Seward to the North, Cooper to the East, Howe to the South, and Corcoran and East Phillips to the West. It was named after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who wrote The Song of Hiawatha. It is populated by a diverse, predominantly middle-class (working class) population. More expensive homes are located closer to the river, and almost all of the housing stock is composed of Sears Modern Homes in the Bungalow style.

The Eliel Saarinen-designed Christ Church Lutheran and the East Lake Community Library building are located in this neighborhood. Coordinates: 44°56′26″N 93°13′23″W / 44.9405°N 93.2231°W / 44.9405; -93.2231[3]
