Macalester - Groveland
Students and homeowners mingle harmoniously in this dignified but lively neighborhood, which is anchored by the Presbyterian Macalester College in the east and part of the Catholic University of St. Thomas in the west.

The intersection of Grand and Hamline is another highlight: the popular Sixth Chamber bookstore, the Grand Shanghai restaurant, Wells Pianos, and Just Truffles are all within a block of one another.
