Ch. Title Description # Day Date Time Length RPT CC DVS AD MD
10.1 Washington Heights This neighborhood has the key ingredients of a Metro Milwaukee realtor’s dream: location, great housing stock and location! Throw in the fact that the neighborhood businesses, services and artists are flourishing on North Avenue and Vliet Street, and this community truly sells itself. Unfortunately, John couldn’t sample the wares at Meritage or Eat Cake, or indulge with the ladies from the 53rd Street Book Club. Bad week for John McGivern to have a “procedure” scheduled! But he got the “all clear” in time to meet some Irish friends at McBob’s and O’Briens. John was given the best gift ever by the owners of Gietl Signs. He was fascinated to see African hair braiding, tried to run a movie at the legendary Times Cinema (no more film, John!), and the neighbors introduced him to his first Little Free Library. John Gurda says that Washington Heights was built and designated to be a special Milwaukee neighborhood. It still is! Thanks, Washington Heights, for ending our season on a high note! (13 of

10.1 The Gurda Hour In every episode of Around the Corner with John McGivern, historian John Gurda rides in and shares the history of each featured community. Truth is, some stories are more interesting than others, and sometimes John Gurda just can’t stop after three minutes. That’s why we created The Gurda Hour – we didn’t want him to stop, either! In the final episode of Season 3, John Gurda covers, in a more in-depth way, the history of six topics: The Milwaukee River, Norskedalen, the Manhattan Project of WWII in West Allis, Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin’s two Basilicas, and Three Bridges Park in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley. Who knew history could be so interesting? Well, everybody knows now! Thanks, John Gurda. (14 of 14)
