North Side

Milwaukee’s North Side originally thrived on industries, supported by a large network of railways. Post-WWII, housing projects originally constructed for veterans transitioned into low income units for Black families. Such projects on the North Side, including Northlawn, Westlawn, Berryland, and Parklawn, remain some of Milwaukee’s largest low income residential facilities. In recent years, re-imagined housing projects, new restaurants and businesses, and reductions in crime have helped many neighborhoods achieve a better quality of life.
