Windom Park Neighborhood
Windom Park is a neighborhood in the Northeast community in Minneapolis. Its boundaries are Lowry Avenue NE to the north, New Brighton Boulevard to the east, 18th Avenue NE to the south, and Central Avenue to the west.
The neighborhood’s housing stock is split evenly between owned properties and rental properties. In 2006, the average home sale price in Windom Park was $240,500. In the west part of the neighborhood, houses were mostly built between 1895 and 1910. On the east side, most houses were built after World War II.
The rental property is primarily concentrated in a complex of apartments between Ulysses and Arthur Street south of 19th Avenue. Additional rental property is scattered throughout the neighborhood. Greater amounts of rental property exist west of Johnson than on the east side of the neighborhood.
The Windom Park neighborhood of Minneapolis is bounded on the north by Lowry Avenue NE, on the west by Central Avenue NE, on the south by 18th Avenue NE and on the east by New Brighton Boulevard. Windom Park is named after William Windom, who served from the mid- to late 1800s as a United States senator from Minnesota and as secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury.
This is a mainly residential neighborhood; single-family dwellings tend to predominate in the eastern quadrant, while multifamily buildings are a feature in the western quadrant, particularly in the vicinity of Central Avenue. Central Avenue, the neighborhood’s western border, is a very active commercial corridor. Many ethnic restaurants line the street, showing how new immigrants are reshaping the neighborhood.
