Episode 610: Shot in Summer 2016, first aired in March 2017
The Garden District. The name sounds like this community should be in a pleasant little village where neighbors know each other and gather in community gardens. Well, add an international airport and 40,000 people and thatâ€™s just what the 13th aldermanic district on the south side of Milwaukee is.
With a name like the Garden District, you probably guessed, as we did, that this is a very environmentally conscious and eco-friendly community. But we found tons of unexpected experiences in this under-celebrated area. Do you know whatâ€™s in that art deco-looking water tower that you see while driving on I-43 near the Plainfield curve? Have you ever seen a grave marker or monument being made? Have you been invited onto a military base and into the simulator of a military refueling plane? Do you know where you can get the best Italian beef sandwich youâ€™ll ever have?
Youâ€™re in for a treat. Thatâ€™s just how we felt in the Garden District. It was a complete treat!
