Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: The Emerson East Neighborhood was originally developed in the 1920's, after Madison's Central Marsh was drained and land became available for houses for workers in nearby factories, including Oscar Mayer's and the French Battery Company. Housing includes a mix of owner-occupied and rental housing. The area covered by the Emerson East Neighborhood Association includes about 2100 people in about 1000 houses and apartment units. Housing is still affordable in the Emerson East neighborhood, and our neighborhood is safe, friendly, and diversified.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Commercial Avenue on the north, North Street and East Washington Avenue on the east, Yahara River on the south, East Johnson Street and the Wisconsin & Southern Railroad Yard on the west
Neighborhood Statistics Indicators: The Neighborhood Indicators Project is a demonstration of key characteristics and various indicators that relate to the quality of life in Madison at the neighborhood level. Basic neighborhood information as well as housing, public safety, health and family well-being, economic, and transportation indicators by neighborhood is available.
Neighborhood Events: Annual Yard Sale Day (June)
