Another antique refuge with a view of the city skyline is just northwest of the university, out in the river. Forty-seven-acre Nicollet Island is a 19th century Victorian landmark settlement and park within the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Zone. It is known as the "Mississippi Mile, the zone stretches from the Plymouth Avenue Bridge and Boom Island downstream to the 1-35W bridge. A flood of restaurants line the "mile"-you can enjoy seafood at Anthony's Wharf, sushi at Kikugawa, and a stuffed jalapeno and cream cheese Tuggburger at Tugg's River Salon-and never have to leave Southeast Main Street Most of Nicollet Island's 400 graceful stone houses were built between 1880 and 1910, and today they are being faithfully restored. Even if you decide not to move to this neighborhood, be sure to take the River City Trolley's narrated tour of the area, 612-673-5123.
Two blocks after crossing the river on Hennepin Avenue, Kramarczuk's East European Deli, which has done business on this corner since 1954, ushers you into the city's old working-class neighborhood of historic St. Anthony East, the birthplace of Minneapolis-not to be confused with the nearby suburb of St Anthony. This wedge-shaped neighborhood, bordered by NE Washington Avenue, NE Central Avenue and NE Broadway, is home to many historical notes of interest including St. Anthony Falls, "discovered" by Father Louis Hennepin in 1680; the Pillsbury "A" mill, the beginning of "Mill City's" flour, lumber, and textile industry; and dandelions, brought here by the first millwright's wife from her homeland. Architectural landmarks, the Russian Orthodox and Ukranian Orthodox churches, Surdyk's Liquors and Nye's Polonaise Room, serve as reminders of St. Anthony's booming business district of days gone by. Now, at the beginning of the new millennium, these businesses are again enjoying popularity, and East SL Anthony is thriving. Massive waves of redevelopment in the 1960s, '70s, and '80s demolished many of the old houses that were replaced with multi-unit housing, Including luxury high-rises where residents are treated to spectacular views of the river and the soaring music from Our lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Consistent with the Northeast tradition of homeownership, nearly all the housing is owner-occupied. For those who love the river, this is an ideal place to live, it's near Boom Island Park for river access, and only a 20-minute walk to offices downtown.
