Greater avenues is an awesome area to live in if you are a downtown or suburban loving person! The community sends out a newsletter with newest information about things that will affect the neighborhood. My dog escaped from my backyard one time and if it wasn't for the neighborhood watch that had been implemented, I may have never found him! I am so thankful for that! The University of Utah is easily accessible by car in 5 mins, bike by 10-20mins, or walking (time varies depending on how far west you are from the school).

One of the best walkable neighborhoods in Salt Lake City. Especially the lower avenues with the historic charm, restaurants, coffee shops and access to downtown events. Two fantastic public elementary schools in Wasatch and Ensign with other great schooling options available. Lower avenues has more of a neighborly feel, more diverse, more friendly and more affordable with the chance of finding a "fixer upper" as old landlords begin to sell off their rental properties. I could see a wave of historic "multi family" homes being turned back into single family. More restaurants and local businesses have been popping up in the last five years and have been seeing more families move to the avenues as older couples sell. Join us!
Probably the most PhDs per square mile anywhere in SLC area. Lot of University of Utah professors and researchers. Relatively liberal although very few solar panels despite southern slope. Also convenient to downtown. Alas even the small bungalows very expensive. Has frequent bus service except winter snow. The buses stop running upper Avenues. If commute by car and live upper Avenues say above 6th Avenue need 4WD/AWD in winter snow. The lettered A... streets usually go straight up the slope. FWD can make it downhill ok. Stall out uphill in snow. Sometimes a pair block both lanes one tries to go around another.
