I don't see the Hoan Bridge going away anytime soon.
I don't see the Hoan Bridge going away anytime soon.
And will the US Bank building forever be Milwaukee's only skyscraper?
And will the US Bank building forever be Milwaukee's only skyscraper?

I'll believe it when I see it

I'm not saying I'm "pro" or I'm "con" (I'll leave it up to you to guess), but I just can't believe that Milwaukee will actually ever:

  • Build a streetcar
  • Win a World Series again
  • Tear down the Hoan Bridge
  • Put a bike lane on the Hoan Bridge
  • Vote for a Republican mayor, governor, senator
  • Build a building taller than the US Bank Building
  • Revitalize the Grand Avenue Mall
  • Get an IKEA
  • Build a Downtown movie theater
  • Build a statue of Bob Uecker at Miller Park
  • Turn the Park East corridor into a lively collection of shops, hotels and apartments
  • Stop selling beer on Sundays
  • Put a Chinese mall in Northridge
  • Experience a season without construction on some part of I-94

Anyways, I'm guessing the author meant these things as unlikely to happen, wasn't necessarily giving his opinion of them.

Obviously some of these things will happen, but if I had to put money on it, I doubt most would. I would like to see most of those things happen though.

milROCKeeguy, what a totally ignorant and most of all bewildering comment to make. I'm actually still trying to wrap my head around it. Normally I find OMC's unabashed homer-ism to be nauseating, that is why I found the tone of this particular article to be so out-of-the-ordinary, especially considering who wrote it. Just because I don't think Milwaukee is perfect doesn't mean I should have to leave. Perhaps it is attitudes like yours that leads to the massive "brain drain" in the region. FYI, if I were to leave Milwaukee it sure as hell would not be for some bland, conservative suburb like South Milwaukee. I'd most likely go west again to greener pastures: Portland, Seattle, Denver, etc. Places where the suburbs and city function as one cohesive entity, regions with excellent infrastructure and adequate public transportation, you know, the things Milwaukee currently lacks.

34540 EastSideMKE, you also have a great attitude. Read the begining of the article...this was just his thoughts. These are common thoughts of most Milwaukeeans. OMC does a great job of promoting the city, and you can tell in most articles that they love it. Seems like you're a little grumpy about it, and maybe should move from the east side to somewhere more fitting...maybe new name SouthMKE?

34540 Nice article Andy. I would love an IKEA but also, do not think it would ever happen. I'm not a fan of statues, but Uecker definitely deserves one. Also a big fan of a downtown movie theater, why not? And my last thing...if they stop selling beer on Sunday, I will move. That would be the last straw!
