Zatra Gartner

Resident, Parent & Chef

I came here from Chicago in 1998.  I haven’t had any problems living in this neighborhood. People are nice. They share. The kids get along. I haven’t been made to feel different. That’s why I stayed here. I raised four children here. I never had any problems. The Mississippi School is wonderful to the kids, neighborhood and parents. When I felt that and saw that -  that’s what I was looking for and that’s why I stayed.


VOICES OF THE NORTH END is dedicated to raising the visibility of North End residents and community goers.  Over the past few years In Progress interviewed and photographed individuals and families that consider the neighborhood their home. In Progress worked in partnership with the City of Saint Paul to identify residents willing to share their stories about what they appreciate most about the neighborhood.
