Northeast Minneapolis is a section north of the Mississippi River. It’s a eclectic collection of houses, retail, restaurants, bars and businesses. Most of the homes have been well maintained over the years and it’s a great place to live, work, be entertained, meet friends and family, etc. This part of Minneapolis is east of the University of Minnesota. In the “U” area, the streets are all named “Southeast” and here in Northeast, the streets are designated with “Northeast”.
