Greenwood is a fairly quiet, beautiful neighborhood. It is close to many bus lines and is a 30-50 minute walk to both Ballard and Northgate, depending on where you live. Most areas in Greenwood are relatively safe, although cars are sometimes broken into and robbed for petty valubles, so you must not leave any valubles in your car at night. Greenwood is a great threshold neighborhood between Seattle and Shoreline, so if you plan to go to Shoreline Community College, Greenwood is a good fit for you. It is also close to North Seattle Community College, which is also a very good college with a range of programs to enroll in.

I really like Greenwood. It's an old neighborhood that keeps its past visible to the public while also embracing modernity in other ways. Some shops are traditional members of the community, and this neighborhood wouldn't be the same without them.
I recently moved to the Greenwood neighborhood in Seattle and I have loved this gentle exposure to the greater Seattle area. In Greenwood you are not in the heart of the city but more in the cozy neighborhood, family raising area. There are plenty of local shops of many varieties with friendly staff! An ideal location to go on runs with pets, SUPER pet friendly area.
