Welcome to our Neighborhood

Comments Off on Welcome to our Neighborhood

Impressions Inc. is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, a couple of blocks off of University Ave. The Minneapolis border is about 300 feet west from the edge of our parking lot. Known as the Twin Cities, St. Paul and Minneapolis share a long and vibrant business history, and are the headquarters locations for numerous Fortune 500 corporations: 3M, Medtronic, General Mills, Target, Best Buy, and United Health Group to name a few.

Our facility is near to the University of Minnesota, and its adjacent retail and restaurant neighborhood called Dinkytown. Dinkytown was once the home of one of our mostfamous citizens, Bob Dylan. Playing in the coffee shops of Dinkytown in the early 1960’s, there Dylan earned his first musical accolades before departing for Greenwich Village in New York and subsequent international fame.

 

“There must be some way out of here” said the joker to the thief “

There’s too much confusion”, I can’t get no relief

Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth

None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.

Just a short stroll heading southwest from our parking lot entrance will lead you to the “Witches Hat Tower”, a water tower built in 1914 up on the highest natural point in Minneapolis. Rumor has it that it was Bob Dylan’s muse for his classic song “All Along the Watchtower”.
