Around the Corner with John McGivern - New Berlin
New Berlin is a city just west of Milwaukee with no official downtown. But there are plenty of long standing companies, like Weston’s Antique Apples and Conrad Schmitt Studios, and relatively new ones, like Exciting Events and Denali Ingredients. There are community traditions to be enjoyed, like the Soap Box Derby, the Milwaukee Lionel Railroad Club and the Rainbow Restaurant. There are established suburban neighborhoods throughout this area, but also room to build. There are great places for locals and visitors alike to hang out, like Matty’s Bar & Grill, and everyone can feel safe with police dogs Askan and Condor on the job. Just one warning: While the people of New Berlin are extremely nice, you will be shamed if you mistakenly call it New BerLIN!
