U.S. Bank Stadium


The parking lot and area in front of the stadium was vacant when I was there, giving it a strange feeling. I was struck by the size of the stadium and how it dominates the surrounding space. The new foot bridges and the light rail stop will serve super bowl attendants well.

City Hall


St. Paul City Hall and Ramsey County Courthouse looks out at a busy avenue and the Mississippi River. It’s doors seem small as the tall building looms above. It produces an old city feeling as opposed to the nearby modern RiverCentre.

Local Business


The Cheng Meng Cambodian restaurant is located on University Avenue along the Green Line. The small restaurant was full of diners and served delicious food. The establishment is one of several of its kind along this section of University Avenue.

Early Suburbia


We spoke to one of the homeowners on Nile Avenue, who told us that her home was built in 1939 as part of the Suburban Infill era. Many houses on the block are tudors, and she explained that the insides have cheap but nice shelving instead of traditional closet space.
