Geocache Description:

Welcome to the west end of Brady Street! Across the street is the Marsupial MaTIREal Garden, a unique landscape project created from re-purposed tires by a group of local artists and activists. The group hopes this unusual park gets people thinking about innovative ways to recycle and re-purpose public spaces in Milwaukee.

Meet the neighborhood!

Head EAST on Brady Street and find yourself amidst an eclectic mix.

Historic Brady Street has long been an ethnically diverse community near downtown Milwaukee within easy walking distance to the shore of lake Michigan.

First named in 1840, Brady Street is an architectural tapestry of buildings mostly constructed between 1860 and 1930, creating a distinctive neighborhood that was home to early Polish, German and Irish immigrants. In the 1930's it became more predominantly Italian; some of the businesses still bear the names of these pioneering Italian families today.

In the 1960s, Brady Street became Milwaukee's very own "Haight-Ashbury" complete with flower children, peace and love, underground political publications and the infamous hippiefest known as Brady Street Days.

Today it is still known for its diversity with a unique mix of specialty retail shops, ethnic cuisine, cool coffee shops, chic salons and a vibrant nightlife.
