Over three weeks in June and July, 18 youth from Saint Paul Park’s and Rec’s Jr. Kidventure program worked with Saint Paul Neighborhood Network, a local filmmaker, community members and historians to produce four thought-provoking documentaries exploring issues affecting Saint Paul’s East Side neighborhood as part of SPNN’s Neighborhood Video Project.
This video explores the history of transportation on the East Side including the demise of the streetcar system and the effect of personal transportation on development in the neighborhood. Includes an interview with streetcar expert John Diers, author of Twin Cities by trolley: the streetcar era in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
