Rose & Thorn was apparently a (children’s) toy store in Uptown in 1981, complete with a puppet theater. The store was located at 3023 Hennepin Avenue, whose building was purchased for the construction of Calhoun Square.

How cities work and change, how they are the product of their inhabitants and outside forces, and the resulting livability keep me thinking and dreaming about the future. I work in transit oriented development and have a background in urban real estate development. I am Past President of an Uptown business organization, grew up in Uptown, was on an Uptown neighborhood association Board, and am an Uptown and Lyn-Lake historian.
