Photos: Madison, Wisconsin

I discovered the Willy Street area of Madison, Wisconsin while wandering around today. It's a walkable, quiet, friendly street with pretty old houses, big trees and several locally-owned businesses including a grocery store co-op a few coffee shops, a pizza/ice cream restaurant and a store that sold just 'zines called the "Madison Info Shop."

The Info Shop was my favorite place because every single thing being sold in that store (mostel 'zines) was made by an individual or group...not a company. So refreshing. I never see tangible media made by nobodies displayed in a store.

I'm only displaying a few photos here on this post. If you want to see all 145 photos go to my Madison Flickr Set.

I think Madison has more pizza shops per capita than New York.
