Marcy-Holmes

Home of the Minneapolis Stone Arch Bridge
Marcy-Holmes is a popular place to live for many University of Minnesota students. The university is only a five minute drive away, making it easy for any student to commute to their classes. A landmark in town is the Minneapolis Stone Arch Bridge. This bridge was formerly a railroad bridge but now acts as a walking/biking trail. On the bridge, many of the locals like to take pictures of the bucolic views of St. Anthony Falls. For anyone interested, there is also the St. Anthony Main Theatre. This independent cinema offers art-house films alongside the big Hollywood blockbusters.

Marcy-Holmes is also a popular place to live thanks to all of the restaurants and bars in the area. All the eateries offer a wide variety of food choices for the residents of Marcy-Holmes. Bars in the area include Maxwell's American Pub, Sporty’s Pub and Grill, Otter's Saloon, Ray J's American Grill, and JL Beers NE Minneapolis. Restaurants for a quick bite include Brasa Premium Rotisserie, Alma, Kramarczuk Sausage Company, Aster Cafe, Eli’s East, The Herbivorous Butcher, and Masu Sushi & Robata. Marcy Holmes is a great place to live for students who want to live in the center of the University of Minneapolis hangout spot.

Marcy-Holmes — 7.4/10 Rating (based on 15 neighborhood reviews)
Marcy-Holmes has a mix of undergraduate, graduate, and young professional residents. It's quiet and residential, walkable to the law school (will be even more walkable once the 10th Ave Bridge is done!), and also walkable to a main street in the opposite direction from Dinkytown with restaurants and such. Also walkable to Northeast, and very walkable to Dinkytown as well. There's a grocery store just to the west as well that is walkable in general from the area. I like this neighborhood a lot for giving some separation from the law school and for being not too undergrad-y and reasonably close to lots of things you might need (though not always at the cheapest prices, so a car is good to have in that respect for groceries and such, if you can- but prices aren't atrocious- you can find cheap options at the nearest grocery store if you're in a position to be flexible about what you're buying).

I enjoy being two blocks from St. Anthony main with easy access to the Stone Arch Bridge. I am also two blocks from Central Ave and Hennepin Ave with great restaurants and neighborhood stores.

It is fabulous to live near school and the Stone Arch Bridge--I walk there a ton. There is some crime that takes place in this neighborhood, but I haven't personally had any trouble.

There is not much going on around my apartment but a few streets away are less lighted streets and can seem a little more sketchy.

Marcy Holmes is a more residential area. It’s fairly quiet, besides some traffic noise. It’s within walking distance to dinky town, campus, the and stone arch bridge.

One half of the neighborhood is very developed, busy, and safe. The other half of the neighborhood is more sketchy, but still safe-feeling. Here, you are close to a grocery store, restaurants, bars, and places for activities. This apartment, however, is old and on the older edge of the neighborhood.

Can be pretty unsafe. Mostly undergrads. Right next to a target express which is also a grocery store which is nice, as well as some bars and decent restaurants.
