An Aural Tour of Riverwest with Larry "Spike" Bandy: Unofficial Mayor of Riverwest/The Neighborhood Project Week 1

Click to enlarge

Larry "Spike" Bandy is the chairperson of the Riverwest Neighborhood Association, and a real man-about-Riverwest. I actually met him last summer when I first returned to Milwaukee from Santa Fe, NM. Not only did I have a chance to talk with him at our own Locust Street Festival, but I also visited him at the RNA digs at the Wright Street Resource Center. He provided a concise and fascinating overview of the rich history of Riverwest. Get this: They raced thoroughbreds down Humboldt Avenue back in the late 1800s!
