"Country's First Pedestrian Mall"

In 1967, faded Nicollet Avenue, the city's principal shopping area, was converted into Nicollet Mall, one of the country's first pedestrian malls. The traffic-clogged street was replaced with a rolling, 30-foot wide roadway for buses and taxis only. Sidewalks were widened and turned into a shady, flower-filled boulevard. A clock presides over Peavey Plaza at 11th Street. This 12-block area is home to hundreds of shops, theaters, department stores, and restaurants.
