Dayton's Bluff Community Garden
Running from just east of downtown south to the banks of the Mississippi, Dayton's Bluff is steeped in history. It was the earliest upscale neighborhood in the city, the preferred residential quarter for the merchants and bankers who built Saint Paul, and today it's the city's largest historic district.

The Swede Hollow Café, perched above the park, serves coffee and imaginative pastries and sandwiches to a loyal crowd.

The Big Picture 9: Bruce Corrie on the power of "ethnic capital"
Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Often, says Concordia University economist and biz-school dean Bruce Corrie, our minority and immigrant communities are seen solely through the "problem" lens. Their struggles are real, but their contributions to our prosperity and potential for growth are greater than most majority Minnesotans realize. And Corrie's got the figures to prove it.
