Milwaukee is known for beer, dairy products(and lots of them) and where most of the black people live. And where most people divide themselves. Let me quide you on the basics:

Blacks,Hmongs,Whites(although 9:10 the live in the suburban ranch houses)and more hispanics are moving up here which is what we need on the Northside. Other races that live on the Northside are Iranians.

Prodominately Mexican and Polish communities, especially when you go to Mitchell St. It;s this Mexican neighborhood which is pretty cool, When I get older, I want to live or work around there. Other races that live their are Hmongs (very few though!) and some Black people here and there.

Upper Eastside: A perfect balance of Puerto Ricans, Blacks, and Whites. though yes, I may say it is sort of inner city-like but it's kinda cool to me up there. They have a Hispanic food store call Pablo's(not sure if it's spelled correctly) but they have some good food there.

Lower Eastside: Basically downtown. Mostly Whites and Far East Indians live on that side. But I have seen quite a few Black people there. The best parts of downtown Milwaukee:The diverse numbers of restaurants and bakeries, Grand Avenue Mall, the Milwaukee River, the big buildings, and most of all, it's right by Lake Michigan.

Probably the most diverse side of Milwaukee. Everyone from everywhere live there. What more do I have to say?

Milwaukee is ghetto, though. This can be good and bad. On one hand, a lot of Whites and Asians are ghetto, which creates ghettoversity (ghetto diversity) because we already know alot of Hispanics and Blacks are ghetto. But on the other hand, there are just a few people that screw it up for every race. And self-segregation is still here. I know all of this because of the simple fact that I live in Milwaukee. I live on the Northwestside of Milwaukee(so I have a lot of friends of different origins) and I go to school on the Lower Eastside. Oh yeah, one thing I forgot is that 1/4 of the popualtion comes from Chicago. Cheap houses here. Other words for Milwaukee are: Mil-town, Madhouse, Milcity, and Beercollectors.
Yo, I need some fresh beer from , but i ain't old enuff, can you go to Miltown fo' me? Don't worry, it'll only take 'bout 1hour to get there and 2 hours back.

Situated along the picturesque banks of wondrous Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is the "hidden jewel of the Upper Midwest," biotch!
Oh, and there are also plans to create public internet "hotspots" downtown!

Repressed for many decades, this city has made vast strides since the late 80's. The city boasts a world class zoo, a one of a kind art museum, excellent food, million dollar condos, dozens of large festivals, a large number of parks, a renewed downtown, arts, theatre, and music. On the negative side, Milwaukee is still gripping with racial segregration, two seperate ghettos, failling inner-city schools, and a strange inferiority complex with its "big brother" to the south (Chicago).

Underrated city. Blue-collar, hard working, friendly people. America's leading beer producer. Home to the greatest music festival ever. Has an awesome zoo, and a true architectural masterpiece in Milwaukee Art Museum. Incredibly, though leaky, ballpark, housing a team on the rise.

Sadly, there's not a lot to do in Milwaukee in winter. But in summer, it's awesome. I said so in the first paragraph above. Plus, there are some hot, nearly topless chicks everywhere.
Milwaukee summer

Chicagoan 1: I'm bored. Let's go get drunk and have the time of our lives!

Chicagoan 2: Narly!

The name teenagers from Mequon, Shorewood, Brookfield and other suburbs will type into the Hometown field on their Facebook profile, instantly making them cooler. Slightly useful for Facebook pregaming once one is able to join his or her college network,

Often clarified by educational info—Menomonee Falls High School is self-evidently not in Milwaukee,
Hometown: Milwaukee, WI
Actually: Whitefish Bay, WI

Person from Michigan: Are you actually from Milwaukee?
Person from Wisconsin: Well, kind of, actually I'm from Racine.
Person from Michigan: Oh.

Largest City in Wisconsin. Population of close to 600,000 but on the decline. Unfortunately the city is best known by Coo Coo Cal's "In My Projects." Like most midwestern cities, Milwaukee is at it's best in the summertime when you can ride through the city and everybody is out with the whips on chrome and females with next to nothing on.
Milwaukee be jumpin when it's hot.

A city that began on the banks of the Milwaukee River and Lake Michagan in the 1830's. Shiltz, Blatz, Pabst, Miller, and many other breweries started here. The 1970's saw a decline in industry and Milwaukee was added to the rust belt city list. Deteriationg factories and homes litter the inner city, but downtown and the far east-side is sprawling. Million dollar condos on Farwell avenue, the re-birth of the Historic 3rd Ward, and Brady Street are just a few positives of Milwaukee's progress. Also just northwest of downtown used to be the worst area that you prayed that you woulnd't never to set foot in. Now the area near Johnson's Park is slowly improving and drug houses from this area are beind revitalized. Also gang violence has declined since the "Notorious 90's" when homicides reached there highest in 1991 with 168 murders. In 2004 homicides took a drastic dip to only 88, but then recoiled to the cities average of 125 per year. Homicides have stayed relitivley low lately in the city despite the growing number of shootings, because of the great care that homicide team in area hospitals give. There where approx. 640 shootings in 2005, that number skyrocketed to over 800 shootings in 2006. So far in April there have been 28 homicides, but once June, July and August roll around those numbers go up. Milwaukee will some day be a safer city, and don't think Milwaukee is a bad ass city(take a look at Camden NJ, New Orleans, and others). It is a very diverse city, has one of the best theater distric's in the country, a phenominal art museum, zoo, and a horticultural conservatory(The Domes). There is lots of great food, places to stay, and it has the largeast music festivel in the world!
Milwaukee, has lots of great food and entertainment
