Its name signifies two things: the African heritage of most residents; and a new spirit of "pulling together" that have taken root in an old neighborhood.The Harambee community is just north of downtown Milwaukee and is bounded by Keefe Avenue to the north, Holton Street to the east, North Avenue to the south and I-43 to the west.At the same time some Riverwest residents may regard the Beerline B as a separate distinct neighborhood or perhaps part of adjacent Brewers' Hill.On the other hand, Beerline B and Brewers' Hill residents might or might not agree that Beerline B is part of Brewers' Hill.Certainly, residents and realtors tend to assign new names as neighborhoods evolve, and some historic identities are revived by community or political groups, Bronzeville for instance.

In 2009, This Old House named Brewers' Hill as one of its "Best Old House Neighborhoods," where the neighborhood was referred to as "a distinctly Victorian-era neighborhood that's found new life in recent years as rehabbers buy up its blighted old mansions and restore them into beautiful urban homes." Franklin Heights is bordered by Capitol Drive to the north, 20th Street to the east, Burleigh Street to the south and 35th Street to Townsend Street to the railroad tracks on the west.This encyclopedic problem is true for all cities but is particularly complicated in Milwaukee when identified neighborhoods can be within other neighborhoods.For instance, Brady Street and East Village are actually inside of the East Side, but Beerline B is essentially located in Riverwest.Its occupants were primarily German until the 1960s.Its first African-American family moved into the area in 1961.
