Let’s say you bought the house we’re selling in St. Anthony Village. If you did, you wouldn’t be a Minneapolitan – you’d be a Villager. St. Anthony Village is it’s own 3-square mile city – St. Anthony, MN to be specific.
Yes, NE is in address and the post office will deliver to a 2701 31st Ave NE Minneapolis, MN address (think of that as a fringe benefit). This is different than NE Mpls in a couple of ways:
- Has it’s own school district – St. Anthony/New Brighton School District
- It’s own mayor, elections, taxes, and assessments
- It’s own 4th of July Parade, Summer celebration, and Christmas firetruck.
Plus, the City Hall/Community Center is just 4 blocks away (coincedently, so is Mpls proper).
We like this city so much, we’re staying Villagers. I suspect this is also why very few houses go on the market in the Village.
