Historic Building – Mostly vacant

Rochat block 1885

The apartments rented out but the retail space is vacant. I know that at one point there was a carriage dealer and then a horseless carriage dealer in the building.  In my own lifetime have seen many businesses come and go. A coffee shop, an antique store, and many more. 

The building is located on West 7th Street in St. Paul between Walnut and Chestnut street. Just across the street from what used to be a Dairy Queen.

Blair Arcade

No snow on the ground at the moment which is something to celebrate. I was out photographing holiday decorations the other day and decided that they look just fine without snow. The lack of snow is good for the city budget especially after last year when it snowed and snowed and then snowed some more.

The Blair Arcade is on Selby avenue in St. Paul.
