milwaukee burbs: west allis


Cyburbian Emeritus
Interesting. Excellent pictures that capture the enigma we call Ws-tallis. I was born there but my family moved away when I was very young - right before the race riots fractured the metro area.

I think these pictures actually make West Allis look pretty good.

-No camaros on blocks
-No plasma donation centers in sight
-No "rot" (well, only a little)

That community has a ton of potential. But like we saw of the Racine pics, the place has an image problem. Running joke:

Q: How can you spot a West Aliis chick at another City's airport?

A: The sweat pants and nylon jacket advertising a (1) bar or (2) bowling alley. Mullet optional.
