Greenfield is a great location which has a lot of amenities! It is far enough away from downtown to feel more relaxed, but it is only a 15-20 minute drive to go to shows and bars in downtown Milwaukee. Greenfield is made up of different age groups throughout. There are very quiet pockets which truly define the suburb feel.

I grew up in Greenfield. Overall, it's been a great neighborhood. I cannot remember a single time I haven't felt safe living here. The craziest things that have happened have been some fireworks being launched around the time of the Fourth of July. Construction can be infuriating, as it seems that it never ends.
Greenfield is a very nice neighborhood to live in and it is very welcoming. I belive Greenfield to be a very nice place to live if you have a family, especially with the amount of retail jobs available for those teens and adults looking for a job. The only problem I see with it is a lack of diversity
