Don't say Pizza Hut or one of the chains because Ive tried them all. But maybe there is an exception. Toppers isn't too bad but a good home made pizza by a family run place seems to always be the best. Any suggestions?

From now on KC3700 is also know as Mr. Northside, I haven't tried their pizza but I always wanted to. Good for him putting his business in that area, it's close to Brewers Hill and hopefully maybe with a few more business owners like him the area will change like Milw.St changed downtown.

It's pretty good stuff. It doesn't have a very thick crust, it kinda crispy. I like to get mine with sausage, because they got really good sausage.

They got other good stuff too. I like their burgers and stuff. They do pasta too, but it's a little expensive.

Yeah, I was pretty happy when he opened up. The thing that was there before him was a corner store that burned down in 2001 because an upstairs resident fell asleep with a cigarette going. Until he built his store that intersection was completely barren land.

I'm hoping that other people will follow his example and build some stuff on that land, maybe even renovate that old brick building between Hubbard and Palmer.

I actually had forgot about Milwaukee Street. That is a pretty big success. I remember how rough it looked when that (present day) Johnston Bank building was abandoned and had it's windows all busted. That street has really improved.

Yeah like you mentioned about Milw.St, I used to catch the bus there all the time in the mid 90's and it was one of the worst streets in Milwaukee in terms of baron buidlings it looked like 12th N Vilet area. I remember every single buidling was boarded up and nothing but trash everywhere. Downtown Milwaukee was a ghost town after 6pm and it took one business man by the name of Thomas Wackman to buy up 4 buildings a once, probably b/c he could buy them at 1$ each they were in such rough shape. It's also nice to see more and more development on MLK south of North Ave(aka Bronzeville).

Still is, quite honestly. It isn't as bad as before, but aside from club-hopping in about 3 isolated spots there isn't much traffic in Downtown after 6:30 or 7. This is one of the issues I heard being talked about at the Downtown Plan Advisory Committee, trying to get more people in Downtown for other things than just clubbing.
