Milwaukee: City of Neighborhoods

November 6th, 2018

Geography matters in Milwaukee. From the very beginning, rivers and railroads divided the city into distinct “Sides” — North, South, East, and West — with dramatically different characters. Within those districts, dozens of smaller communities developed — places like Bay View, Layton Park, Pigsville, Washington Heights, Rufus King, Riverwest, and North Point. The result is a mosaic of small-scale hometowns that make the city both intelligible and approachable. Join me for a lively illustrated look at the patterns that have made Milwaukee pre-eminently a city of neighborhoods. This program is part of St. Alphonsus Parish’s Adult Learning Program, but everyone is welcome. Books will be available for sale and signing after the talk.
