Downtown St. Paul has been getting a facelift ahead of the Republican National Convention. This means filling vacant storefronts with high-end retailers on short term leases, recruiting street musicians, bolting down trash bins and planters. There're even spray-painting the leaves green and feeding birth control to the pigeons.
