Seattle Metropolitan Magazine recently published an issue celebrating the “Best Places to Live 2010″ and Normandy Park was included in the 15 neighborhoods.
Other ‘hoods touted amongst the “Emerald City’s 15 must-live neighborhoods” include: Alki, Queen Anne, Green Lake, Madison Park, View Ridge, Woodinville, Richmond Beach, Capitol Hill, Kirkland, Columbia City, Renton Highlands, Maple Leaf, Ballard and Shoreline.
The sales pitch: Britt Weber knew no one in Normandy Park when she moved to town nearly 16 years ago, but she did know where she could meet young mothers like herself: the pool. Geographically, the Olympic View and Normandy Park swim clubs sit at opposite ends of this posh hamlet of 6,000, but metaphorically, they’re the twin social suns around which everything else orbits.
It’s anybody’s guess what will happen to home values next, but if there’s anywhere they’ll stay stable, it’s here.
The mag also published an interesting “by the numbers” table on area neighborhoods, which you can read here.
