BAY VIEW REAL ESTATE
Bay View in Milwaukee was originally incorporated as a village in 1879, but only 8 years later its residents voted to be annexed to Milwaukee. Its roots have placed this Milwaukee neighborhood in a special place. Even today many people think that Bay View is a separate entity like St. Francis and Cudahy to its south. It is roughly bounded by Lake Michigan, Meredith Street to Superior, up to Nock Street and then from Wentworth Avenue to Pryor Avenue. Much of Bay View has been lovingly maintained over the years. There is a sense of community here and you’ll find older urban neighborhoods with many homes that have been thoroughly updated.
Bay View is all of the zip code 53207 and includes the Tippecanoe neighborhood. It extends from the Harbor south to Layton Avenue and from 6th Street east to Lake Michigan or St. Francis and Cudahy.
Bay View has several areas that offer diverse entertainment, dining, and shopping opportunities. The busy intersection of S. Kinnickinnic Ave and E. Lincoln Ave has undergone a recent revitalization, with many new occupants including Colectivo Coffee Roasters, who built a large bakery and cafe on the south side of the intersection.
Travel farther south, and you’ll pass the newly renovated Avalon Theater, which shows unique art films as well as blockbuster movies. Just south of the Avalon is another vibrant area of Kinnickinnic Ave, with dozens of great shops and restaurants all within walking distance.
You’ll get a good sense of community in Bay View, with interesting and unique events held in the area at great places such as the beautiful Humboldt Park. The people here are proud of their neighborhood. With a diverse population that skews young, Bay View is seen by its residents as a different kind of neighborhood, more down-to-earth than Downtown or the East Side, but a great place where you can be yourself and still raise a family. Homes here are diverse as well, with many old, stately homes available. Bay View offers something for everyone, in a place that you can be proud to call home.
