Featured Place

Thomas - Dale/Frogtown

Here Hmong, African-Americans, Latinos and other hard-striving urban folk live in modest houses. This being St. Paul, there are a lot of churches in the neighborhood, the most imposing of which is the steep-spired St, Agnes, home to a congregation of tradition-minded Catholics whose Sunday masses are accompanied by master musicians from the city's orchestras. And  this part of University Avenue contains Asiatown, a long stretch of Vietnamese, Hmong, Chinese, Lao, Thai, and Cambodian stores and restaurants that have revitalized a once-moribund streetscape.
