Love the neighborhood. Neighbors are friendly and helpful, yet aren’t “nosy” and are respectful of personal privacy. Access to light rail, banking, food, gas stations, and close to the university. Centrally located between Minneapolis and St. Paul. Close to the University of Minnesota—walking distance!

In the area I live, there are many different cultural options of restaurants. American, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Italian are examples of restaurants that can be found easily in the area.
There is a slight lack of retail stores in the area. It is a twenty minute drive to find a variety of stores such as Walmart or Target. There also seems to be a lack of gas stations. In most places it seems that, while driving, gas stations will find you, whereas in Minneapolis you really have to search for them.
