Bryant

Located in northeast Seattle, just south of NE 65th Street, Bryant is primarily a residential neighborhood home to an array of schools, parks, and libraries. The community is occasionally referred to as Ravenna-Bryant, because it borders Ravenna Park, (so you might want to look at Ravenna to get the full picture of the area). Small but fun, the neighborhood is served by two grocery stores and contains a cute selection of bars, cafes, and restaurants along 55th street. On July 4th, Bryant has a block party, with firefighters leading a parade down the street, trailed by kids, parents dressed as historical figures, and the proverbial Statue of Liberty lady. The parade, and this neighborhood, are adorable.

Bryant is a tiny little sliver between Ravenna and View Ridge, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in charm.

Bryant has a well-kept-secret sort of feel. It’s mainly residential and full of some extremely charming houses, but there are a few areas around the University Village and along 35th Avenue that contain businesses. This is a great place to be if you enjoy the surrounding neighborhoods but like to be in a quieter location.

Upper-class singles and couples are attracted to Bryant and its 1940s homes. Over 50% of the population is married, according to Zillow, and 28% of households have children. Residents are more likely to own their home than to rent.
