Payne - Phalen

Payne Avenue is one of the most colorful streets in Saint Paul, once the center of Swedish immigrant enterprise, then a mix of antique shops and empty storefronts, today a developing Little Mexico. And Lake Phalen is yet another of the Twin Cities' flourishing, and well-used, urban bodies of water. Together they define a neighborhood that combines a rich urban fabric--many of the buildings on Payne predate the 1890s--with plenty of greenery for strolling or biking.
