Nice indeed. A very underrated city, no ?

One of my favorites in the Midwest along with Chicago and the TC's! I do believe Cincinnati and St Louis has great potential.

I been anticipating for sometime of the day we will receive more Mil threads here on SSC and over on SSP. You are delivering it, El Mariachi!

Just a request, maybe more future neighborhood tours ? Milwaukee has significant row homes like NYC, Chi, Pitts, Bos, Cin, STL, Phil, DC, Balti, SF ?

Yeah, Milwaukee photo threads have become quite rare. We used to boast a huge number of photographers, but it has dwindled. These were the first pictures I have taken and posted in years. Glad you enjoyed it though!

Milwaukee doesn't really have many rowhomes. Nothing remotely close to the cities you listed. Housing stock is mainly wood framed housing. We are probally more similar to cities like Minneapolis/St. Paul, Cleveland, and Buffalo, when it comes to the housing stock. As for the future photo tours---will do, my friend!

^ Thanks for the information, yes I agree with the similarities. I would say closer to the TC's. Buffalo, Cleveland and Detroit remind me of each other due to similarities, nothing to do with being rust belt, just general layout and design.

I will be anticipating your future tours, El M.

yeah, they have done a pretty good job with the old warehouses/buildings in this city and converting them. The neighborhood shown here was a blighted area years ago and now its one of the best in the city.

yeah, its pretty interesting how the housing stock developed in these cities. Milwaukee is so close to Chicago, but they are so different in that department. Same goes with Cleveland/Columbus and Cincinatti.

I got one more phototour left to post. I'll try posting that tonight!
