Ms. Landeros, who is Mexican-American, said she and her boyfriend, who is Black, have been harassed by the police. As a fervent Black Lives Matter supporter, she said she was discomfited by the “Trump 2020” and “We back the badge” signs that dot many yards.She avoids taking her children to parks or other public spaces in New Berlin, which is 93 percent white, because it seems like people stare at them, she said. – Advertisement – Mr. Chiovatero, 60, feels some vindication in what the complex has become.

But last year, Ms. Landeros, 28, and her two children moved into a two-bedroom unit for about $700 a month, less than half of the market rate.“It’s a very relaxing, nice area,” said Ms. Landeros, who grew up in Milwaukee and works in nursing.- Advertisement –
