Milwaukee - Brady's Street

Getting to know Milwaukee's Brady Street

Brady street is in the heart of Milwaukee’s East Side and runs east and west, connecting the Milwaukee River to a footbridge that goes down to the lakefront; on Brady Street, you’ll find single and multi family dwellings, apartments, stores, apartments above stores, many restaurants, a laundry, a hardware store, grocery stores, a drug store, many people walking, a firehouse, churches, coffee shops–an eclectic mix of all that makes a city neighborhood great, in a humble, non-glitzy, non-shopping-mall kind of way; Brady Street was the center of Milwaukee’s hippies during the counterculture days of the 20th century.
