Dinkytown: A Brief History

Dinkytown, USA (commonly Dinkytown) is an area within the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Centered at 14th Avenue Southeast and 4th Street Southeast, the district contains several city blocks occupied by various small businesses, restaurants, food courts, bars, and the like, and apartment buildings mostly housing university students. Though known for housing local small businesses, the character has changed in recent years with more bars and corporate chains, though many small local businesses still thrive. Dinkytown is along the north side of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities East Bank campus.

Notable landmarks include the Dinky Dome (a former theological seminary converted to a food court), the Loring Pasta Bar (formerly Gray's Drug and also the building where Bob Dylan lived in Minneapolis), and Al's Breakfast (arguably the city's smallest restaurant). It's also the location of the 2nd store opened by Richard M. Schulze called "Sound of Music" which later became Best Buy.

Several landmarks are considered historic including Vescio's Italian restaurant, which opened in the 1950s, Annie's Parlour, and The Book House. The former Marshall-University High School on the corner of 14th Avenue and 5th street was closed in 1982 due to low enrollment and was purchased and converted into the University Technology Enterprise Center (UTEC) for startups. The Chateau co-op built their brutalist-style 22-story apartment co-op in 1973 at 13th Avenue Southeast and 5th Street Southeast.
