Genesee is a very popular neighborhood. My clients who live there tell me they like to walk to the Alaska Junction for the cafes, boutique stores and other services as part of their exercise program. The homes are on nice sized lots. There is a new children's playground. They have a neighborhood association. Many of the homes have views since there is quite a bit of variation in terrain. Some homes have fabulous views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. My guess is that you will love living in the Genessee neighborhood.
