It's mostly a green, quiet, tree-lined neighborhood of postwar-era houses, but Highland has some surprises as well: a flourishing Hasidic Jewish community, the multi-ethnic Sibley Plaza mall, home to La Hacienda, a pan-South-American restaurant and a Kiev, a comprehensive Russian grocery store, and the lively business district on Ford Parkway, with a medley of urban offerings: from one of the city's best movie theaters to the hip Highland Grill--Australian-style fish and chips a specialty--and Punch Neapolitan Pizza, which was dishing out southern-Italian-style traditional pizza before that retro-purist trend hit New York.

Wednesday, July 20, 2011
For urban designer Peter Musty, who's collaborating on plans for the Loring neighborhood in Minneapolis and the Ford site in St, Paul, walkable, transit-focused neighborhoods are non-negotiable. We need them for our health and prosperity--and to help our culture calm down.
The natural-pet-foods movement is growing, and Woody's is its Twin Cites headquarters
Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Hence the natural-pet-food movement, and new businesses like Enrique and Michelle Palma's Woody's Pet Food Deli, where "human-grade" pet food is for sale.
