"From Industry to Homes"

As the name would suggest, Northeast Park is located in northeast Minneapolis and is conveniently close to downtown. This neighborhood is divided into distinct areas for shopping, industry and housing. The land area follows the curve of I-35W, so it is able to function well with this set up. The industrial spaces are located near the Hillside Cemetery while the Quarry, a large shopping center, forms a barrier between the western edge residential area and the warehouses. The Quarry has rows and rows of retail shops that are sure to keep visitors bust for hours.

The collection of homes includes many prewar single family dwellings and some more contemporary properties. Both sale and rental prices are on the affordable side, making living this close to downtown practically a steal. Having the Quarry in the Northeast Park neighborhood, however, attracts constant crowds of people, which can add some noise every now and then. The actual Northeast Park and its recreation center host a variety of activities such as putt golf, swimming and soccer. Residents of various ages will fall in love with this neighborhood that has just about every amenity that one needs within walking distance.
Pros

  • The Quarry
Cons
  • Noise from shopping crowds
  • stigma of industrial neighborhood

"Good schools and close to downtown"

The Northeast Park neighborhood is really like three separate communities under one roof. It sits in the northeast section of Minneapolis and therefore gets its name. Within Northeast Park there is a residential section, a shopping section, and an industrial section. The nice way it is arranged, though, is that the retail and business section, known as The Quarry, is almost like a blockade to the sights and sounds of the industry area. This makes the residential area seem further away from factories than other neighborhoods with industry in them. In The Quarry you will find a great selection of shops. Homes in Northeast Park are typically Victorian in style, but there are some newer ones and a few rental units. The prices for all of these are quite reasonable, especially given the easy access the neighborhood has to Interstate 35 and Downtown.

The Northeast Park and Recreation Center is a draw for many residents and visitors. It includes a putting green, a new awesome outdoor water park, multiple athletic playing fields, and other amenities. The Recreation Center also runs many different programs for youth in the area. One of the educational highlights of the Northeast Park neighborhood is the Chinese Immersion Charter School that is relocating into the area.
Pros
  • Chinese immersion school
