At the turn of the past century, Cedar-Riverside, named for the two main avenues, was called the ‘Snoose Neighborhood’ for the large population of Scandinavian immigrants.
At mid-century it became a haven for hippies, artists and intellectuals. In recent years, it’s been a landing pad for east Africans.»Star Tribune's Rochelle Olson explores the past, present and future of Augsburg College’s neighborhood in the article, “Big changes ahead for Minneapolis’ Cedar-Riverside area.”
Metro Transit This Weekend
The light rail is under construction and buses are going to be used instead of the light rail to the Cedar/Riverside stop so plan accordingly this weekend!
And don’t forget that streets will be closed Saturday, August 18th for the West Bank Music Festival!
If you have any issues with figuring out what I said, visit metrotransit.org or call them.
