I live on the Eastside of Milwaukee--I love it here and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. (Aside from being a better apartment that is...) My grandparents lived here, my dad grew up here and now I wander around and make art here. I've been to lots of beautiful cities and given them my Goldilocks Report: too big, too small, too expensive, too hot, too cold. But my neighborhood next to Lake Michigan in all its trashy-grimy-telephone-pole-staple-studded- glory is home. I like to say that Milwaukee is Chicago's sluttier younger sister: cute, approachable and doable for under $50.
