Saint Paul

I took some more photos today. The first group are from St Paul and are mostly residential architecture shots. These are from the Macalester - Groveland and Merriam Park neighborhoods which are in the westernmost part of St Paul. This area was first built up in the early 20th century and has a lot of prairie school, arts and crafts, and spanish revival architecture. It is also home to a number of liberal arts colleges: Macalester, St Catherines, Concordia and the University of St Thomas. Most of the homeowners in the area are middle class, upper middle class or wealthy while the renters tend to be college students, recent graduates and people with blue collar jobs.

So do I. Nearly all of the Stevens Square and Loring Park neighborhoods are made up of buildings like that.

I also took some photos of the east side of St Paul today. These are all from the area around Payne Ave which is one of the main commercial streets through the neighborhood.

Some squirrel portraits from Loring Park. All of the animals in Loring Park are relatively tame from being around people so much but the squirrels in particular are completely fearless and rather aggressive. They would go through your pockets if they could.

Loring Park is connected to the core of downtown by a pedestrian pathway:
