Greenwood

Greenwood MapCorner of 85th and Greenwood Ave.

You've come a long way, Greenwood! - As the fist neighborhood I lived in when I moved to Seattle, Greenwood will always have a place in my heart. Perhaps it's because this was the first Seattle neighborhood I really got to know, but it seems like Greenwood's changed more than any other neighborhood in Seattle in the last 15 years. Condos continue to sprout out of nowhere (where haven't they?). But where once were little more than a couple antique stores, a cosmetology school, a couple dive bars, and a few banks, now there are an ever-growing variety of restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops, brewpubs, and boutiques. Was it the population growth that spurred the modernization of this once-outlying neighborhood? Or did people decide to move to this highly-walkable neighborhood because there were finally a few things actually worth walking to? Either way, year by year, Greenwood is becoming a better and better place to live and many people are finding this a great place to put down roots.

Get there or stay here - Despite being further north than other popular Seattle neighborhoods, because of easy access to both Highway 99 and Interstate 5 (via 85th and the slightly less-traveled 80th), commuters can get downtown much faster than folks in Blue Ridge or even Wedgwood. But with so many worthy things to do and see in Greenwood, it's not uncommon to find Seattleites coming from outside Greenwood to hang out, drink, eat and shop. Virtually everything worthwhile in Greenwood can found within two blocks of the corner of Greenwood Avenue and N. 85th Street. Highlights include Gainsbourg, Naked City, The Angry BeaverThe Yard Cafe, and the newest (and our favorite) addition: Flintcreek Cattle Co. Greenwood is also home to Seattle's best game shop, Gary's Games. And no discussion of Greenwood would be complete without mention of Baranof. This classic Seattle dive bar also has a full restaurant; I've just never seen anyone eating in it. Over the years, virtually nothing about the Baranof has changed. The drinks are still strong, the atmosphere is still crusty but comfortable, and none of the bartenders have ever once smiled. And karaoke 7 nights a week. If shopping is on your mind, you'll find anything you might need for your home, garden, refrigerator and closet at the newly remodeled Fred Meyer.

Affordable homes in North Seattle - It's no secret that houses in Seattle get cheaper the further north you go, but considering what Greenwood has to offer that other neighborhoods at this latitude don't (Crown Hill, Lichton Springs), buying a home in Greenwood is a relative bargain. In 2013, homes in Greenwood sold for an average of less than $400,000. Even more affordable are condos in Greenwood, most of which are within easy walking distance the heart of the neighborhood. Condos in Greenwood sold for an average of $180,000.
