"Concrete Jungle"

The name of this neighborhood gives it all away. Camden Industrial Area is in fact a long strip of industry warehouses along I-94 that is separated from the river ad highway by a high concrete wall. Though maps will show this community along some green, there is little that is indeed green or visually appealing about this cement jungle. The Camden Industrial Area, though, is of great importance to the city of Minneapolis. Major local manufacturers create their products and provide their services here just across the railroad track from Webber Park, which is the location of the Minneapolis City Hall and Courthouse.

Those who live in the immediate area more often than not also work in one of the warehouses, and pay near nothing to do so. One will find only small apartment buildings of modest rows of low budget town homes that come with cheap rent and very rarely sell for more than $120,000. The reason behind those prices is that very few actually want to live here. Yes, it is extremely close to downtown, but anyone who needs extended periods of shut eye will not get it here with the noise of the freeway and the surrounding manufacturers, as well as the railroads that are on both sides of the river and within hearing range of Camden Industrial Area. For those that are employees of one of the manufacturers, however, there is not a more convenient living situation.
