"A main artery of St. Paul"

This is a busy street in St. Paul, with lots of shops. Few are “swank” but all are serviceable. It is close to the U Of M and has excellent mass transit links to downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Not high on the high life, but a good place to be in you are young.

"Sketchy street with reedeming qualities"

Marshall Avenue runs through the heart of the Old Rondo neighborhood. Once a thriving community, the construction of interstate 94 destroyed the local charm. The neighborhood was broken up and never returned to its previous splendor. Once part of Saint Paul's "Urban Forest", huge Elm trees provide a beautiful canopy over the street. However, Dutch Elm disease has thinned the number of trees in recent years. Marshall Avenue now runs through a low-income neighborhood that has seen better days.

For shopping, the best bet is Grand Avenue a few blocks north, a lovely walk. For education, Marshall Avenue is home to the historic Central High School, renown for academics and athletics, and the private Concordia University Saint Paul, a school with Division 2 football team and national champion volleyball team. Restaurants are slim, at least west of Lexington avenue, but there is a terrific Ice Cream shop known as Izzy's on this street. Marshall avenue runs through several of Saint Paul's neighborhoods, and has a youth recreation center as well as the Oxford Community pool.

Marshall Avenue may not be the nicest street in America, but it has everything you would need.

heavenr Marshall ave is a fabulous place to live. Multi-ethic, multi generational group of people who take pride in their community and really look after one another! Maybe give it another look, sketchy is definitely not how I would describe it.
