THE LITTLE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT COULD

Humbler beginnings are hard to come by. Once called Woodland, Greenwood wasn't much more than a marsh and a cemetary at the start of the 20th century. Forty years later "Greenwood" was called the "Miracle Mile". Shops were and still are booming in Greenwood. Greenwood is far enough away, while oddly still close enough to downtown Seattle. All the flavor but none of the chaos of city life. Greenwood feels similar to Fremont, Ballard or Greenlake, only more affordable. Greenwood enjoys that nostalgic Seattle feel that everyone loves.
