The Federal Reserve Bank is located at 90 Hennepin, on the corner of Hennepin Ave and N 1st St. Visitors enter through the main entrance off Hennepin Ave.
The Federal Reserve Bank does not offer parking facilities. There is a ramp directly across N 1st St from the Fed, which is open to the public and requires a credit or debit card upon entrance and exit.
A Central Parking surface lot is located on N 1st St between N 1st Ave and N 2nd Ave. This lot requires cash or a credit card.
A Minneapolis Parks & Recreation surface lot is located on Nicollet Island. It is accessed by traveling east on the Hennepin Avenue bridge and turning right onto Wilder Street. This lot requires coins or a credit card.
Metered street parking is also available; however, meters surrounding the Fed have a two-hour limit. Some meters are unavailable during the morning and evening rush hours due to bus lane restrictions. Meters accept cash or credit at a central pay station.
