"The International Face of Minneapolis"

Located on the opposite side of the river of the University of Minnesota and sandwiched between I-94 and I-35W, Cedar Riverside is the most ethnically and culturally diverse community in the city. Almost half of the residents are foreign born and the mix of different architectures reflects the diversity in the population. The neighborhood is home to the fine art facilities of the University of Minnesota as well as the Augsburg College. The eateries and shops in the immediate area do not have counterparts anywhere else in the city and they offer a look into Minneapolis's international population.

Those looking to quench their thirst are never short of options and can mosey on over to the Hard Times Cafe, the Acadia Cafe or the Nomad World Pub. The artistically inclined can view art and shows on campus or within more low maintenance spaces such as the Mixed Blood Theater or the Cedar Cultural Center. The housing options are pretty much limited to apartments and to renters, but they tend to come at very affordable prices. It can be difficult, however, to find vacant properties during the fall and spring semesters when many students are wanting to live just off of campus. The main downside of Cedar Riverside is the frequent crime, mostly consisting of theft and burglary. Hence residents would do well to have bolt locks on their doors.
