You can build in any direction. You can even bypass a city (but paying the cost for the two connections).

You cannot start a new network in Minneapolis, however. You must pay the connection cost from a city that is in your network. If that connection is multiple links away from a city in your network you must pay the cost of each link.

From Chicago, St. Louis, or any city you passed through you can build to a city "next to" your network paying only for the link you use.

Any time you want to add a city to your network, you pay the cheapest connection cost from any city in your network to the new city, plus the build cost for the city itself.

Thanks to the link for the FAQ. This actually answered several questions that we've bumped into but haven't bothered to ask about.
