Around The Corner with John McGivern: Milwaukee's West End

About This Episode

The West End is one of the most eclectic areas in Milwaukee, and we think eclectic is great! Miller, Harley-Davidson, renovated mansions, tiny Shriner cars and chickens - all together in about one square mile just west of downtown Milwaukee!

The neighborhoods to the north and south of Wisconsin Avenue from 27th Street west to Highway 175 - Concordia, Cold Spring Park, Merrill Park and the Valley-Pigsville neighborhoods – are collectively referred to as the West End. And while it’s true that John found the architectural combinations puzzling and the zoning to be crazy, even he had to admit that here it all works!

Around the Corner with John McGivern shows you all the rich and vibrant history of Wisconsin through its diverse neighborhoods. Hear local stories as old as the state itself then see up-and-coming small businesses. Join John McGivern as he explores living, working and playing in these one of a kind communities.
