Back on the East Bank along the river, between the University and St. Paul, Prospect Park is a place where security is not a huge concern. People who live in "the Park" say they live in a small town with an urban beat, a place where they can walk to work, to recreation, shopping, and community events, and probably recognize everybody along the way.
Residents here are 10 minutes by car from each downtown, and centrally located for travel to any place in the Twin Cities. Their strong sense of place probably has to do with the areas clear geographic boundaries: steep hills and the pointy green witch's hat water tower, which is visible from 1-94. Once a year the whole neighborhood climbs to the top and is treated to a panoramic view of the cities all the way to the airport.
The area's civic history dates back to the late 1800s when it was a commuter suburb on the Minneapolis streetcar line. Today, imposing historic residences rub elbows with new condos and public housing on Prospect Park's meandering streets. Though there is a laissez-faire attitude toward landscaping and the used auto parts business displays "found-art" sculptures, beautiful restoration is appreciated. Many of the homes date from the early 1900s up to the 1930s and feature art glass windows and other elegant details. Popular updates include turning butler's pantries into second bathrooms and putting in modem kitchens. While Prospect Park lacks a large grocery, it does have Tower Foods, a convenience store that doubles as a community meeting place. Quiet streets and tree-covered slopes give the neighborhood a tranquil character.
