The walkable “heart” of Northeast Minneapolis is an area once known as the Old Saint Anthony business district. Flanked by the Mississippi River to the south, 3rd Avenue to the west, Broadway to the north, and I-35W to the east, the area is known for eating and shopping options. Just a stone’s throw across the river from Downtown Minneapolis, this part of Northeast – the Heart – has become a vibrant residential and business destination in its own right.
You will find a mix of old and new which fit together well here. From kitschy Nye’s Bar (formerly the beloved Nye’s Polonaise) offering live polka music to the alluring Herbivorous Butcher, the first vegan butcher in the country, and everything in between, the Heart of Northeast provides a buzz and energy not found many other places.
