    It’s one of the few ATMs that don’t charge a fee. This neighborhood has really gone down hill. 43 year resident speaking. Maybe it’s time to get out.

      It’s so sad what Barrett , Flynn, Chisholm, and the far left judges have let happen to this city Dan. If you are able definitely move out. I live south of Howard Ave on the same number streets. Because of Obama’s recession my home is worth less than what I owe. I imagine I will foreclose in about five years and move out of Milwaukee County all together. By that time this whole city will be a ghetto and homes worth maybe $20,000.00 I am happy Trump got elected. I think he will do great things for America. But Milwaukee is run by the far left so it can not survive. I am 52 years old and have lived here all my life except the time I was in the Air Force. It was once such a beautiful city with such a great history, now it is just terrible as every year we learn it is in the top ten most violent cities in the United States of America per capita.
