The homes they are beautiful. Its parks and it is for me to the Wisconsin State Fair during the summer time. Although the environment seems to be White Supermcy. The children have started marking on pubic places the Hilter sign. This has been on going situation for now about 10 years or more. The Channel 12 news hasbeen reporting the vandalism that has been the art work of the children.

Here in West Milwaukee is very lively. Everything seems to move in a blur. I love it though! It doesn't feel like you live in an empty space. I wouldn't change a thing!
I liked West Milwaukee because the schools were right next to each other. My kids went to the school system and so we went to a lot of different football games with my boys. I really liked at the school they had an PTA where parents could get involved with organizing certain events.
