|Greater East Side|
The Greater East Side neighborhoods provide suburban comforts within minutes of downtown Saint Paul, the businesses along Phalen Corridor, 3-M headquarters, and employment and retail opportunities in the neighboring city of Maplewood. Most homes were built after World War II, in rambler and Cape Cod styles—some are located on curving streets and others face the Hillcrest Country Club’s golf course. Many families live in the neighborhood and are close to several different schools and recreational facilities.

The Greater East Side neighborhoods are much newer than most parts of Saint Paul; however, some homes were built with the arrival of the railroads in the area in the 1870s. The Hazel Park neighborhood was platted in 1885 by William Ames and a few of the historic homes remain (along Flandreau Street and Ames Place.)
Housing Styles and Types
The Greater East Side neighborhoods have varied housing styles and ages. The eastern-most neighborhoods have mostly post-World War II rambler and Cape Cod-style homes with well-tended yards, giving the neighborhood a distinctly suburban feel. More historic homes as well as apartment complexes can also be found in the neighborhoods.
