Why Do People Live Here? 

Rosemary Lee calls the Capitol neighborhoods “the urban heart of Madison.” She would know. Rosemary has lived on Bassett Street since the early 1970s. She loves the area’s cultural attractions — and that many of them are low-cost or free. Art Fair on the Square, Taste of Madison and the Madison Farmers Market are fixtures of downtown Madison that draw visitors from across the state. Rosemary says she loves taking evening strolls on State Street where ethnic eateries, shops and boutiques peddle some of the city’s finest wares. The Capital City State Trail bike path also weaves through the area, which makes the Overture Center, the Monona Terrace and theCapitol Square accessible by foot or bike. And employment opportunities abound with federal, state and private employers calling the Capitol neighborhoods home. Rosemary simply sums it up by saying, “I love living in downtown Madison!”
