Amazing photos, the area's bursting with potential. I'm surprised it still looks so run down, I would have expected more development.

thanks guys!

This area is somewhat run down, but its still kind of a work in progress. New housing/resturants/offices are being built into these old buildings in this part of town---didn't really photograph them all that much though.

Yes, but I don't mind seeing some industrial areas with potential.

Awesome tour once again, El M! Artist types looking for studios would love this area for sure, as it is here in the NYC area.


You know how I am interested with Milwaukee, maybe one day we can get a tour in a populated area with activity. Storefronts, restaurants, ect. Sorry for all these request.

More good photos El Milwaukeeachi, this annoys me though, when utility companies etc dig up roads and sidewalks, they should be made to patch it up in the same material, otherwise it just looks crap. The same thing happens over here.

thanks!

Yeah, this street is an absolute disaster. If there is one thing I hate about Milwaukee, its the number of these kinds of streets.

Milwaukee has a fascinating industrial heritage. It's amazing to see a whole way of life--ie industrialized modernity--become history so quickly. Nice to see buildings preserved.

Does Milwaukee feels the social-economic breath of Chicago or does it got some autonomy??

there are alot of connections with Chicago socially and economically, but Milwaukee is autonomous. It's pretty distinct culturally and architecturally as well, despite having similar demograhpics and geography with Chicago.

Milwaukee has some great urbanism in it's fabric. The US was very good at building urban spaces in the past, perhaps at some point in the future it will continue, we were almost there before financial shitstorm happened.
