Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: We take our name from the historic Greenbush addition, which served as the first home of many Italian and Eastern European immigrants to Madison at the close of the nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries. The current Greenbush Neighborhood contains the last of the original homes from that old neighborhood, most of which was demolished in the late 1960s in order to build Bayview, Gay Braxton, and Brittingham apartments. Today the Greenbush Neighborhood offers access to Vilas Beach, Vilas Park Zoo, the UW Arboretum, the UW campus, and a short bus ride or walk to Madison's thriving downtown. We also contain two of Madison's three hospitals within our neighborhood boundaries. The neighborhood offers a wide variety of homes, from efficiency apartments to new condominiums to gracious bungalows from the 1920s.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Regent Street on the north, South Park Street on the east, Erin Street, South Orchard Drive, Wingra Drive and Haywood Drive on the south, South Randall Avenue on the west
Neighborhood Statistics Indicators: The Neighborhood Indicators Project is a demonstration of key characteristics and various indicators that relate to the quality of life in Madison at the neighborhood level. Basic neighborhood information as well as housing, public safety, health and family well-being, economic, and transportation indicators by neighborhood is available.
Neighborhood Events: We host multiple events throughout the year: - Labor Day / Memorial Day Potluck - Leaf Clean Up Workdays - Halloween Costume Parade - Waffle-Palooza - Winter Warm Up
