The Near East

Welcome to The Near East

Madison’s East Side it’s where hippy old school meets hipster. Older, historic-style homes are punctuated with modern re-dos, condos, and apartment living. Small homes or big this side of town holds it all. Lake access just blocks away or out the back door. The East Side has an easy and creative sensibility and it loves fun and festivals. Foodie and craft cocktail spots abound. New and locally owned establishments thrive, and there’s always something to pique your palate or your palette. Fave hanging-out streets include WIlly, Atwood, and Johnson Avenues.

Framed by two big lakes and many trees, the East Side of Madison rolls down from The Capitol Square into its dual personalities Bohemian and urban sophisticated at once. East Washington Avenue stretches out with new apartment and condo dwellings, amenities, and conveniences. Surrounding Williamson Street, affectionately known as Willy Street, is a joyful burst of color and free-form styles. Both new and mainstay businesses add to the lively, community-minded feel.
