There are two Lake Streets, one East of 35W, the other, tonier, is West. From Lyndale to France, with slight detours here and there, are a selection of eateries usually worth the few extra bucks for ambiance, wine lists and desserts.

We lived near here many years ago. It has changed some over that time, but it is still where many nationalities call home. From the bridge over the Mississippi River to Lake Calhoun, you drive through several miles of busy, colorful and less expensive residential and business areas where you might want to keep your doors locked in the later...

I have lived over 2 blocks from lake street. Grew up walking down it, riding the buses. The traffic is terrible. Pedstrians dont follow laws and jaywalk. There is a lot of crime in certain areas.
