"Mobile Homes, Marsh, Industrial Hangers, Strip Mall"

Even Marin County has trailer parks--or more accurately in this case motorhome parks. That is what you find here. Greenbrae East is a bit of an industrial area with wharf style hangers housing auto body shops, truck repair shops, a tow yard, a car glass place, a heating and sheet metal place, and that sort of thing. It is mostly ugly and rusty looking like a lot of these places have been for a long while.

There is also a mid-sized motorhome park here. It isn’t much, and feels a little bit like it has just been plopped down here.

On the far southern end of this neighborhood there is a pretty typical strip mall, with stores like Cost Plus and Trader Joes--it looks far more modern and inviting than the rest of this neighborhood. On the far northern end of the neighborhood you will find there is the Greenbrae Boardwalk which has a line of homes that are some of the oldest in all of Greenbrae. They extend out into the marsh and have backyards that give out onto Corte Madera Creek. They are nice but precariously built near the water--especially given Climate Change projections.

Overall this is a pretty interesting place, if not particularly attractive. .
