Apartments: Brady Street & Upper East Side

Brady Street & Upper East Side

The Brady Street neighborhood offers the chance to actively engage in the ongoing revitalization of this popular area. The neighborhood has transformed itself into a model for the “New Urbanism,” while retaining its bohemian character and ethnic roots. Community prevails, strengthened by various events and festivals: Of note are the eponymous Brady Street Festival; annual Pet Parade; the Milwaukee Film Festival (held at the distinctive and historic Oriental Theatre); and the avant-garde street art gallery, Black Cat Alley. Specialty retailers, chic salons, vintage and thrift stores, coffee shops, pubs, cutting-edge ethnic restaurants, and flourishing nightclubs offer residents a variety of experiences. A brew-your-own establishment, underground golf tavern, full-service alternative bakery, and boutique focusing on ephemera handmade by local artists, often from refurbished or recycled materials, prove that innovation is ubiquitous. Within walking distance of Lake Michigan via a network of trails, it is also the bike hub of the city.
