When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Greenbank neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Greenbank is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
One of the notable things about Greenbank is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Greenbank neighborhood has more
Eastern European and Belgian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 1.1% have Belgian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If you like to ride a ferry to work, this neighborhood may be for you.
NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 1.6% of the Greenbank
neighborhood's commuters ride a ferry to and from work each day, which is more than we found in
99.5% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
If you are planning to retire in Washington, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Greenbank
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Washington,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 99.2% of neighborhoods in
WA. If a Washington retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Greenbank neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 69.9% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 98.3% of the neighborhoods
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Greenbank
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Greenbank neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
11.4% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.2%
of all neighborhoods in America.
