Thank you! Nice, lucid answer. Judging from all the facts and figures I've gathered on this in the past, your information seems pretty consistent with it all and puts it together quite nicely. The only one I've never heard about is the one on Good Hope. People never seem to discuss areas further west near I-45 and I-100. I hear neither good nor bad stuff; just no talk of it whatsoever. So the areas West of Sherman Boulevard up to I-45 and 100 aren't hood for the most part, huh? I will say I've heard significant amount of talk of Hampton Heights (which is west of Sherman Boulevard) not being the best area but also not the worst area either. My birth house is over in McGovern Park. Seems I was surrounded by hood but not quite in it.

Yea, but for the most part I get it all, especially the north side: Gets bad at Sherman Boulevard, loosens up by Glendale on the north and by perhaps Riverwest on the east. The south side I am still confused about. I don't know what KK is.

You keep saying KK but KK stops at the Milwaukee river what street do you mean?. I would say the freeway 94/43 as the eastern border and west to 27th. KK river on the south and Pierce on the north.

Wouldn't W. Pierce on the north include Walker's Point area? I thought there was nothing to worry about in Walker's Point!

Yes I know where kk is. I just meant it as an eastern starting point for the hood.

I may be slighly off on good hope , but there are some projects on 107th close to good hope that are pretty bad at night. Not sure where hampton heights is , but you will find an occasional rough apartment complex here and there even in the not so bad parts of the city.


Also the bad area I told you about between 60th and 70th between villard and silver spring; I should have said between villard and about just past flourist.


Also I don't know of any bad part of hwy 100 offhand , but I know there is a semi rough pocket arond 92nd and appleton. Not horrible , but a place to keep your eyes open.

Haha Thanks for all the corrected info! Actually, I found the KK thing you're talking about on the map. The actual spelling of it is something ridiculous so I now see why everyone is calling it kk.

When you have been to other cities such as Memphis, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, PHX, Miami, Nashville, Cincy you get a real sense on how nice Milwaukee actually is. We all know the near north side is ghetto and parts of the near south side but those two areas do not make up majority of the city.
Agree with you and disagree with you at tyhe same time. People from other parts of wisconsin do tend to overhype milwaukee , as if the whole place is some rotting cesspool.


However , I been to a lot of cities myself , including the ones you mention , and milwaukees hoods are every bit as bad as the cities you mentioned and are actually worse than most of them.


You gotta understand , you're talking about a city with over 700 shootings a year , and a hundred murders , and almost all that stuff happens in an area with less than 100,000 people. You'd be hard pressed to find a hood anywhere in america that can top that.
