Love it but why the busy street

Every summer my daughter and I ride our bikes to the large chair. we play King of the chair, take lots of pictures. But we do hate the busy street. But overall we love it

Large green chair. Not much else. It's at the north end east side of the high bridge (smith avenue).

Big green chair is a must see, only takes about 5 minutes, but it's fun and a local spot. Get a fun pic and be on your way, very close to downtown.

this was my husbands idea. I was laughing so hard while climbing up to sit on the chair that I could hardly make it up, but when I posted pics on facebook, my friends were amazed and loved it

It's a big chair. Not much to tell. Drive by it as you head down off the Smith avenue bridge into the city.

This is a great visual as you drive north east over the High Bridge connecting west St. Paul to the downtown area. It would be fun to stop and take pictures of people occupying the chair but safety is very critical here. Busy instersection and no place to park.

It is just a big green chair at the end of the famous High Bridge over the Mississippi River in St Paul but it is a fun stop for pictures of your travels to the city. Just a few blocks walk from 7th Street/Fort Road. Pack a picnic and enjoy the view of the Mighty Mississippi and maybe a walk... More

The large green chair sits just west of the high bridge in St. Paul, MN. It's located in a unique Polish & Czech neighborhood. Younger people will have no problem jumping up on the chair to pose for pictures, while older people might find it easier to stand in front of the chair. Parking is easy off a side street... More
