While I walked around St. Anthony yesterday I saw the the future of transportation. Segways. Dozens, all together, lining the inside of a shop. Right on the other side of the river from the Mill Museum. Only a short time until they’re here in St. Paul.
As I walked down the Mill District there was remnants of the time for trains and street cars. However, the restoration of the neighborhood choose to build itself off of automobiles, train depots turned into parking lots, buildings knocked down for the same purpose all throughout the neighborhood. Businesses on wheels such as a coffee truck are all around feeding the neighborhood and those who work at the nearby Valsper. The structure was similar but the purpose and use has been turned on its head.
