A Streetcar Named Undesirable


Location: 46th St.

The Riverview Corridor is a transportation route that runs from Union Depot in St. Paul to the MSP airport and the Mall of America. One proposed option involves streetcars on 46th Ave. To judge from the banners along 46th Ave, this is not universally popular. More information can be found at http://www. riverviewcorridor.com.

New businesses in Longfellow


Location: 4022 E 46th St.

Pink Closet- a clothing consignment shop-used to occupy this space. Now Solid State, a record store that buys and sells used music and Foxtone Music which sells music mixing and audio creation equipment, have revamped the space to call it their own.


I love that the building remains a space where the old becomes new again.
