As part of the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Zone, the neighborhoods of Nicolette Island and the East Bank are considered historical and cultural centers for the city. With approximately 1,000 people, the Nicollet Island/East Bank area is a somewhat sparsely populated neighborhood. The vast majority of the Victorian-style homes on the 47-acre island were built between 1864 and 1898. The peace of the Nicollet Island residential area contrasts sharply with the eclectic East Bank collection of offices, retail stores, restaurants and other commercial establishments. Both neighborhoods have excellent access to public transportation, both Downtown districts and the University of Minnesota.
