This is a great little community. You can kayak, great little shops, it has the rail trail, and great resturants.
Brady Street Neighborhoods, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
This slideshow presents the diverse home styles and the very essence of the Brady Street neighborhoods.
Brady Street boasts of great diversity that draws from many distinct eras. It began in the mid-19th century as a crossroads between middle-class Yankees from the East and early German settlers. Polish and Italian immigrants soon followed, working the mills, tanneries, and breweries that lined the riverbank. After these groups had assimilated and many of their descendants moved to the suburbs, the hippies in the 1960s arrived with their counterculture to fill the void. By the 1980s, the area fell into blight, neglect, and decay; now, a true model for new urbanism, the Brady Street neighborhood is in the midst of a renaissance.
