Lake Effect's Mitch Teich interviews Milwaukee Magazine blogger Aimee Robinson.

Aimee Robinson isn't a historian, she's not an architect, and she's not a Milwaukee native. So at first blush, she might not seem like the natural person to write a column on distinctive, historic Milwaukee buildings.

But those factors actually play to Robinson's advantage in her blog, which appears at Milwaukee Magazine's website as a feature is called "Intersections."

Robinson, an editorial assistant at the magazine, explains what spurred her interest in Milwaukee's buildings.

"What has always fascinated me since I moved here is how all of these old buildings across the city are in use," she says. "Back home, during the oil boom, it left so many buildings afterward without use."
