Earlier this week, we told you that Milwaukee would be featured in The New York Times this weekend.  Indeed, that's the case as the story hit this morning.  A print version is expected Sunday.

"Modern Milwaukee isn't so much defined by the Rust Belt anymore, but rather by its lively downtown and a signature museum so architecturally striking that it competes for attention with the art it holds," according to Maura Casey, a writer for The New York Times.

Casey recently spent "36 Hours in Milwaukee" and in her new article she describes how today's Milwaukee is unrecognizable compared to the city that existed decades ago.

You can follow Casey's dash through the city by clicking here. Be sure to click on the slideshow for some great photos.
