Walkable Milwaukee

Andrew Knee calls Milwaukee a "walker's paradise," saying that the city has completely changed from a decade ago into a walkable network of neighborhoods.

"Once you're on foot, you find that this city has a lot to offer in its confusingly large yet compact downtown area," says Knee.

"Over the years, Milwaukee's built form has organized itself into categorized blocks spread across the downtown area that feature various bars, restaurants, and other entertainment destinations. If you want to see college freshmen go to Water Street, if you want to hang out with yuppies go to Milwaukee Street, if you're part of the counter cultures of America go to Brady Street, etc. There are dozens of these little strips that are all easily walkable between each other."
