French missionaries and traders first passed through the area in the late 17th and 18th centuries. .The word "Milwaukee" comes from an Algonquian word Millioke which means "Good/Beautiful/Pleasant Land", Potawatomi language minwaking, or Ojibwe language ominowakiing, "Gathering place [by the water]".[7][8] Early explorers called the Milwaukee River and surrounding lands various names: Melleorki, Milwacky, Mahn-a-waukie, Milwarck, and Milwaucki.^ The humans who gathered at Sweet Water were as excited as the fish, who were happy eating by early evening in their new home!

For many years, printed records gave the name as "Milwaukie". One story of Milwaukee's name says,
.
[O]ne day during the thirties of the last century [1800s] a newspaper calmly changed the name to Milwaukee, and Milwaukee it has remained until this day.^ They tip dumpsters over in the streets like it's going to change something, then they have a May Day picnic while the biggest demo in the history of Milwaukee is taking place.

The spelling "Milwaukie" lives on in Milwaukie, Oregon, named after the Wisconsin city in 1847, before the current spelling was universally accepted.
.Milwaukee has three "founding fathers", of whom French Canadian Solomon Juneau was first to arrive in the area, in 1818. The Juneaus founded the town called Juneau's Side, or Juneautown, that began attracting more settlers.^ Organization for Inspiration is a newly founded Non Profit Organization in Milwaukee Wisconsin for Visual Artists, Poets, Musicians, and other creative people in the Milwaukee area.

.In competition with Juneau, he established Kilbourntown west of the Milwaukee River, and made sure the streets running toward the river did not join with those on the east side.^ The Milwaukee stand wil;l be located in a vacant lot turned community garden next door to Amaranth Caf on Milwaukees west side.
  • Milwaukee Renaissance : Main/The Milwaukee Renaissance 10 January 2010 5:12 UTC milwaukeerenaissance.com [Source type: General]

This accounts for the large number of angled bridges that still exist in Milwaukee today. Further, Kilbourn distributed maps of the area which only showed Kilbourntown, implying Juneautown did not exist or that the east side of the river was uninhabited and thus undesirable. The third prominent builder was George H. Walker. He claimed land to the south of the Milwaukee River, along with Juneautown, where he built a log house in 1834. This area grew and became known as Walker's Point.
By the 1840s, the three towns had grown quite a bit, along with their rivalries. .There were some intense battles between the towns, mainly Juneautown and Kilbourntown, which culminated with the Milwaukee Bridge War of 1845.^ There will be some time at the Sweet Water “Night School” devoted to conversations advancing collaborations between Milwaukee, Africa, and rain forest peoples, e.g.
  • Milwaukee Renaissance : Main/The Milwaukee Renaissance 10 January 2010 5:12 UTC milwaukeerenaissance.com [Source type: General]

Following the Bridge War, it was decided the best course of action was to officially unite the towns. .So, on January 31, 1846, they combined to incorporate as the City of Milwaukee and elected Solomon Juneau as Milwaukee's first mayor.^ The City of Milwaukee is moving toward privatizing Milwaukee Water even as they speak of making Milwaukee the Fresh Water Capitol of the world (privatization is part of that scenario too).

German immigration

Drawing of Milwaukee in 1854
A great number of German immigrants increased the city's population during the 1840s, and continued to migrate to the area during the following decades. Milwaukee has been called the "Deutsches Athen" (German Athens), and into the twentieth century, there were more German speakers and German-language newspapers than there were English speakers and English-language newspapers in the city.[citation needed] The German heritage and influence in the Milwaukee area is widespread. .To this day, the Greater Milwaukee phone book includes more than 40 pages of Schmitts or Schmidts, far more than the pages of Smiths.^ How about this: More Wisconsinites have been killed in Milwaukee in the last four years than in Iraq.

One prosperous innkeeper wrote after arriving in Wisconsin: "I would prefer the civilized, cultured, Germany to America if it were still in its former orderly condition, but as it has turned out recently, and with the threatening prospect for the future of religion and politics, I prefer America. Here I can live a more quiet, and undisturbed life."[citation needed] One journalist commented in the Houston Post that "Germany seems to have lost all of her foreign possessions with the exception of Milwaukee, St. Louis and Cincinnati."

Foremost among these were Polish immigrants. The Poles had many reasons for leaving their homeland, mainly poverty and political oppression by Germany (many immigrants came from the German part of Poland). .Because Milwaukee offered the Polish immigrants an abundance of low-paying entry level jobs, it became one of the largest Polish settlements in the USA.^ When I asked them why they would do this the response was simply “because everyone knows Milwaukee has one of the best zoos in the world”.

With the large influx of immigrants, Milwaukee became one of the 15 largest cities in the nation, and by the mid-1960s, its population reached nearly 750,000. Starting in the late 1960s, however, Milwaukee, like many cities in the "rust belt," saw its population start to decline as a result of various factors, including the loss of blue collar jobs and the phenomenon of "white flight."
.Nevertheless, in recent years the city has begun to make strides in improving its economy, neighborhoods, and image, resulting in the revitalization of neighborhoods such as the Historic Third Ward, Lincoln Village, the East Side, and more recently Walker's Point and Bay View, along with attracting new businesses to its downtown area.^ We expect some local Bay View, Third Ward, Walkers Point, Riverwest, and/or Eastside restaurants to compliment the Sweet Water fish: in Bay View perhaps Wild Flower with rye bread, Lulu’s for slaw, Cafe Central, Svens, Outpost, for example, with potato pancakes.

Geography

Aerial view of downtown Milwaukee
Milwaukee lies along the shores and bluffs of Lake Michigan at the confluence of three rivers: the Menomonee, the Kinnickinnic, and the Milwaukee. Smaller rivers, such as the Root River and Lincoln Creek also flow through the city.
Milwaukee's terrain is sculpted by the glacier path and includes steep bluffs along Lake Michigan that begin about a mile (6 km) north of downtown. In addition, 30 miles (48 km) southwest of Milwaukee is the Kettle Moraine and lake country that provides an industrial landscape combined with inland lakes.
.According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 251.69 km² (96.9 square miles).^ "Imagine, now, if these angry mobs took place in every major city in the United States.

Cityscape

Panoramic view of Downtown Milwaukee at night, grid system visible
The city runs largely on the grid system, although in the far northwest and southwest corners of the city, the grid pattern gives way to a more suburban-style streetscape. .North-south streets are numbered, and east-west streets are named.^ S.

The north-south numbering line is along the Menomonee River (east of Hawley Road) and Fairview Avenue/Golfview Parkway (west of Hawley Road), with the east-west numbering line defined along 1st Street (north of Oklahoma Avenue) and Chase/Howell Avenue (south of Oklahoma Avenue). This numbering system is also used to the north by Mequon in Ozaukee County, and by some Waukesha County communities.

This arrangement enables a family of limited means to purchase both a home and a modestly priced rental apartment unit.

.Milwaukee's proximity to Lake Michigan causes a convection current to form around mid-afternoon in light wind regimes, resulting in the so-called "lake breeze", a smaller scale version of the more common sea breeze.^ Milwaukee Tuesday, August 11, 2009 Milwaukee County Downtown Transit Center Harbor Lights Room - 2nd floor 909 E.

The lake breeze is most common between the months of March and June. This onshore flow causes temperatures to remain milder near the lake compared to inland locations..September 2008" style="white-space:nowrap;">[citation needed] Residents of the area refer to this phenomenon through the phrase "cooler by the lake," which is sometimes used in a punning manner to refer to Milwaukee's nightlife and festivities as well.^ Milwaukee Area Time Exchange is a network of neighbors building safe and vibrant communities through the exchange of our greatest natural resources: our time, skills and spirit.

The light (a "gas flame") on top of Wisconsin Gas Building (center-right) gives basic forecast. Here, blue indicates "no change in view."
As the sun sets, the convection current reverses and an offshore flow ensues causing a land breeze. After a land breeze develops, warmer temperatures flow east toward the lakeshore, sometimes causing high temperatures to be reached during the late evening. The lake breeze is not a daily occurrence and will not form if southwest to northwest winds generally exceed 15 mph (24 km/h). The lake acts to moderate cold air outbreaks along the lakeshore during winter months.
.Despite Lake Michigan, overnight lows in downtown Milwaukee are often much warmer than suburban locations because of the urban heat island effect.^ Milwaukee Tuesday, August 11, 2009 Milwaukee County Downtown Transit Center Harbor Lights Room - 2nd floor 909 E. Michigan Ave., Milwaukee, WI .

Manufacturing

Rail tracks along the industrial Menomonee River Valley, ancestral home of the Menominee Indians
Because of its easy access to Lake Michigan and other waterways, Milwaukee's Menomonee River Valley has historically been home to manufacturing, stockyards, rendering plants, shipping, and other heavy industry.
Reshaping of the valley began with the railroads built by city co-founder Byron Kilbourn to bring product from Wisconsin's farm interior to the port. .By 1862 Milwaukee was the largest shipper of wheat on the planet, and related industry developed.^ Being near the KRM commuter rail line sends the word out that Milwaukee wants visitors and development in and around this years-vacant industrial site.

Highway

Two of Wisconsin's Interstate highways intersect in Milwaukee. Interstate 94 comes north from Chicago to enter Milwaukee and continues west to Madison. Interstate 43 enters Milwaukee from the southwest and continues north to Green Bay. Milwaukee has two branch interstate highways, Interstate 894 and Interstate 794. I-894 extends from the western suburbs to the southern suburbs, bypassing downtown. I-794 extends east from the Marquette Interchange to Lake Michigan before turning south over the Hoan Bridge toward the airport, turning into Highway 794 along the way. Milwaukee is also served by three US highways. U.S. Route 18 provides a link from downtown to points west. U.S. Route 41 and U.S. Route 45 both provide north-south freeway transportation on the western side of the city.
In 2010, the Milwaukee area was ranked the 4th best city for commuters by Forbes.[70]

Water

The Lake Express Terminal
Milwaukee connects with Muskegon, Michigan through the Lake Express high-speed auto and passenger ferry. The Lake Express travels across Lake Michigan from late spring to the fall of each year.

Bicycle

Milwaukee has over 65 miles (105 km) of bicycle lanes and trails, most of which run alongside or near its rivers and Lake Michigan. .The Oak Leaf Trail, a multi-use recreational trail, provides bicycle trails throughout the city and county.^ Oak Leaf bike trail remains intact.

Still pending are the creation of bicycle lanes along major commuting routes, such as the Hoan Bridge connector between downtown and the suburbs to the south. The city has also identified over 250 miles (400 km) of streets on which bike lanes will fit. It has created a plan labeling 145 miles (233 km) of those as high priority for receiving bike lanes.[71] .As part of the city's Bicycle and Pedestrian Task Force's mission to "make Milwaukee more bicycle and pedestrian friendly", over 700 bike racks have been installed throughout the city.^ The City of Milwaukee is moving toward privatizing Milwaukee Water even as they speak of making Milwaukee the Fresh Water Capitol of the world (privatization is part of that scenario too).

High speed train

In 2009, Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle, with seven other governors of Midwestern states and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley have joined in bipartisan support of a high-speed rail network that would link cities around the region. Milwaukee would be connected to Madison and Chicago as part of the first phase of the system. “.Obama">President Obama’s vision of making high-speed rail a part of our nation’s future transportation network holds great promise,” Doyle and co-signers wrote in a letter to U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.^ The future may hold great things for Veggie Trader, only time will tell if the site can attract enough members to gain enough momentum to make a difference in the local food movement, but we’re certainly rooting for them.
