Yesterday we dissected Milwaukee's ugly side, but today we follow the conversation up with a list of Milwaukee's most attractive features, which, by the way, was much easier to compile than the former.

We highlight the people, the places and the structures -- yes, we love Mark di Suvero's "The Calling," aka the sunburst sculpture at the east end of Wisconsin -- that make Milwaukee a beautiful place to live. Here they are, in no particular order. Feel free to add your own favorites using the Talkback feature.
