This neighborhood, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is close to the Milwaukee River and is made up of a mix of large, often historic buildings that were formerly furniture store warehouses. Many have been restored and now house upscale shops, restaurants, and condos as the area transforms into an arts district. Old-fashioned street lamps illuminate the area, and a small park and a pedestrian mall along Broadway Street strike a verdant note. The ward
is also home to the Milwaukee Public Market on Water Street and St. Paul Avenue and the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (273 E. Erie St.)

This is a great place to go to get some food or do a little shopping. It's also fun to just look around or sit by the river.
