Since the late 1800s, University Avenue has been a major thoroughfare connecting Minneapolis and St. Paul. In 1890, urban streetcars shuttled residents from city to city, and today light rail construction is underway. Numerous businesses line the Avenue, evolving over the years with ever-changing neighborhoods. KFAI’s Dan Greenwood visits with Linda and Nikolai Alenov, owners of the Russian Tea House, to talk about how local immigrants have shaped this area.
