"My Dorm Street"
I lived on N 11th St at W Wisconsin Ave for one year while attending Marquette University. It was a bit loud with the windows open because I basically lived in the middle of the Marquette interchange- the largest and busiest interstate interchange in Wisconsin! I witnessed some fantastic, noisy car crashes from my window during rush hour. N 11th st has quite a bit of traffic itself and I always had to dash across the street carefully to get to class. There was great access to the city bus system. I felt close to downtown and could get to the city's central library, the grand avenue mall, and all the great downtown attractions (restaurants, bars, Summerfest, etc) quickly and easily.
