Saint Paul is the capital of Minnesota and one of the Twin Cities, along with minneapolis. Just about everything the guy below said is true, except cottage grove sucks ass, and the gangs here are really not that bad - nowhere NEAR chicago's, at least.
Saint Paul is mostly middle-class neighborhoods, with the "ghettos" being mostly east of downtown. The "good" area to live in is west of downtown, but the "WEST side" is SOUTH across the stinky stoner-infested missisippi river, and a totally seperate city as far as i'm concerned. the streets make even less sense, as you can clearly see. The main part of St. Paul is cut through the middle by University Ave., which is filled with immigrant-friendly shops and surrounded by either ugly facotires or ugly poorer neighborhoods. South of university is nearly the opposite, Grand Avenue, which has just as many people but all of them are white and think they are cultured because they go to caribou coffee instead of starbucks. In the southwest is Highland, which is full of jewish people, and the only place in the entire city where hmongs (asians) are not at least a third of the population. The missisippi river is filthy and you will drown in it. at late night/early morning it is quite possibly the biggest stoner retreat in the entire midwest.
North of downtown is geniously called "north end", and it's not a very nice neighborhood either. it's only about a third white people, so if you are an immense whitey like most minnesotans, just stay out of there with your purchased fake ghettoness. Next to north end is Como, which is sort of nice, and next to that is St. Anthony, which is so white that it makes you go blind (but full of hippies too). that about sums it up.
"Ugh, who the fuck has heard of "st. cloud"? ive been in this damn car for 5 hours. OH MY GOD, TWO SCYSCRAPERS! I'VE FOUND CIVILIZATION! oh wait, I thought this was minneapolis. shit."
"dude, lets toke some mighty dro down by the river."
"I walked to west seventh and all I got was a mexican sandwich made out of cow tounges. it somehow tasted delicious."
"I wanted to find a good club in st. paul, but all I found was some rich white kids from St. Anthony park playing in a battle of the bands where they should all lose."
"Downtown saint paul is boring as fuck and constantly deserted except for weird people and politicians who cant make up their fucking minds on the state budget."
