Listen: Growing up, my best friend lived in Sherman Park so I thought I had a decent understanding of the area. As I found out during our tour of the neighborhood, I'd only glimpsed the tip of the iceberg. If Milwaukee is a city of neighborhoods, Sherman Park is a neighborhood of neighborhoods. Fred Curzan and Wendy Washington of the Sherman Park Community Association were nice enough to introduce us to their neighborhood, and they treated us to the works. Take a listen: [audio=1] In the coming weeks, we'll explore Sherman Park's legacy of beautiful houses, their commitment to diversity, and long history activism, even finding intersections of all three. And if you're looking for a way to discover Sherman Park for yourself, grab a bike -- I took a nice long bike ride around the neighborhood last week and there was so much to see.
