Trying to get a feel for what the neighborhood is like around the Lexington Pkwy N & Minnehaha Ave W area. Would you classify it as a safe neighborhood for a newly married couple going to U of M St Paul Campus?

Default Midway area

Hello - my wife and I (both professionals who work DT Mpls) live a few blocks south of the intersection you are asking about. I have lived in this part of St. Paul for almost 5 years now, and we love the neighborhood. The location is close to Como..a quick drive to 94 and minutes to both DT Mpls and DT St. Paul..and University avenue, which although is definitely a bit rough around the edges has a great multi-cultural influence in addition to awesome food choices.

It is the city...and a working class neighborhood...so, not as upscale as highland park or mac-grove etc. but the people in general are a little more down to earth as well. Again, its the city, so there is some crime....but this is St. Paul...not Chicago..Gary..or Detroit....overall, its a very safe area and a great place to live.

Hope this helps....good luck.

I'll just second that. It is a safe and convenient place to live in the city. It is not fancy but it is not dumpy either. You should be fine.

It's an affordable alternative to housing closer to campus. Had a friend who owned a home there, liked it fine.
