Anyone have anything good/bad to say about this area? I might be moving within 100 yards of this intersection.

Central Ave NE, Lake St S, Broadway Ave N, and other old city business neighborhoods have all been abandoned by the city fathers in favor of shiny new condo projects and sports stadiums that please the fancies of a few hundred well-heeled socialites. People that actually live and work in this town (but don't have bottomless trust funds or corporate charge cards to keep them afloat) have been cast aside and told to fend for themselves. You'll find plenty of them down on Lowry & Central.

Welcome to America.

What're you saying, though? There's homeless? Or that it's blue-collar?

You might be being a LITTLE dramatic with this one...

Blue-collar. Although, I'm not terribly familiar with NE Minneapolis-- I don't think I've ever seen homelessness in that area, though, and that includes canvassing for a construction company for 30 hrs a week for about 3 years (we did neighborhoods around Central in NE a TON because there were lots of older homes).

A lot of Indians and other subcontinental Asians have moved in around Central Ave., although maybe not that far north. Makes the area kind of interesting, though.

I live a few blocks from that intersection, close to Lowry in the Audobon Park n'hood. I don't think crime is too bad. My house has never been broken into or anything like that. There is a police station close to there on Central, and you will have a little noise from sirens from police cars and firetrucks since that's a main emergency route. The Eastside Food Coop near there on Central is a nice place to shop. Central Avenue has some Mexican and Middle Eastern restaurants (Holy Land), but other than that, I don't go there much for shopping. Central Avenue isn't that fantastic, but as you go east on Lowry, the neighborhood gets a little nicer. The NE Library near there on Central is nice too. Will you be buying or renting? I don't think I'd choose to live right on Central, but the blocks around there are decent. Welcome to the neighborhood!

I also live in Audobon Park. Northeast is very safe. There is absolutely nothing to worry about.

Not looking for just hints on safety... also, things to do, any cool landmarks, etc.! I'm young, I can fight off the baddies

That intersection is one of the most dangerous in the city for bike riders.
