  1. East Slider says:

    Another interesting piece Michael, especially the part about the $8 the city is still hanging on to. If the city is anything like the IRS or WI Dept of Revenue and the tables were turned and it was a taxpayer owing a debt that started out as $8 back in 1968, well now in 2013, once they figured in all of their wonderful penalty fees plus the usual confiscatory interest rate, you’d probably be owing them somewhere in the neighborhood of $2 million!

    I do have to take issue with one item though, Newberry is a very nice street to have a home on, I’d say its only behind Wahl, Terrace and (but of course!) Lake Drive as the swankiest street in the entire city of Milwaukee. Yet, as you head west on Newberry, the homes do become less and less swanky with each block and by the time you reach Oakland, its hardly any different than nearly any other street on the east side, save for the nice wide median strip. I’d still say that if I had to pick any one street for the dividing line between swanky and just above average, it would still be Downer, although there are several homes west of Downer such as this one that are still definitely in the swanky category all day long!

  2. So true, East Slider — by the time one nears N. Oakland Ave., the homes on E. Newberry Blvd. have regrettably devolved into duplexes! Yes! Rental properties, and often occupied by college students — undergraduates, no less.
    I suppose it takes all kinds.
