Minneapolis is in the southeast portion of Minnesota and sits along the Mississippi River. There are also 24 small lakes in the city. The abundance of lakes led Charles Hoag, an early settler and Minneapolis's first schoolmaster, to suggest a name derived from minne, the Dakota word for water, and polis, the Greek word for city. The city is also known as the "City of Lakes", a phrase that appears on many municipal vehicles and properties. People living in Minneapolis are called Minneapolitans. Minneapolis's economy has been historically based on the adjoining agricultural area, though that has changed in recent decades. The city is ranked first among U.S. cities in transportation solutions and fourth in energy technology.
