One of the oldest and fast growing neighborhood in Milwaukee! Our location is perfectly spot. We are the gateway to Milwaukee when you leave the airport, you go through us! Locally to farmers markets, lake front, great parks and awesome schools and businesses!
Very friendly neighbors and quiet nights, even though I live on a main street. Other parts of the area are hard to find parking though, due to large amounts of residents with cars and businesses.
