Greenwood and Phinney team up for the Annual Art Walk in May. Greenwood also puts on the Greenwood Classic Car & Rod Show in June. If that is not enough, it is just a stone’s throw from nearby Greenlake, as well as all the park activities in Phinney Ridge. For those who enjoy shopping, Northgate Mall and Seattle’s first two-story Target store are only a short drive north.

Its popular eateries and shops are located along Phinney Ave N which turns into Greenwood Avenue N. Phinney Ridge primarily consists of small- to medium-sized apartments and condominium buildings located along Phinney Ave N and Greenwood Ave N, as well as single-family homes and privately-owned townhomes on the hills toward Greenlake and sloping toward Ballard. You can find numerous vintage brick buildings most with hardwood floors that run along Phinney Avenue which curves and turns into Greenwood Avenue.
Recently there have been some craftsman-styled townhomes developed in this area. Some of the privately-owned townhomes come available for rent. The houses on the slope to the east and west of Phinney and Greenwood Avenues are primarily craftsman- and bungalow-styled homes developed from the 1920s to the 1940s. On the west side on the hill facing Ballard you can find homes facing west and offering beautiful sunset views. Many residents choose to rent here for its central location and easy access to downtown.
