Luke Amann is worried for his 2-year-old son's safety. He heard about the nine armed robberies in this area last week, and even though he's called the east side home for five years, he says it's time to go.
"Especially with George, my son. It's like you always have to look over your shoulder now. It feels like the vibe is worrisome. It's worrisome," Amann said.
Kathie Eilers disagrees. She's lived in Milwaukee for decades, and decided to move to the east side six years ago.
"When we first moved to Milwaukee, it was in terrible shape. I think people have worked really hard to make this a vibrant neighborhood that people like coming to," Eilers said.
Police say no arrest have been made in the string of armed robberies.
