Portland Neighborhood

Just walking and wondering one of our interesting Neighborhoods can be fun and give you a good feel for the people of Portland. These neighborhoods are center on retail, restaurant and entertainment streets. Each were run down at one time and have revitalize over the years. It first started with NW 23rd that showed it could be done and is more up scale now. Then Hawthorne took off and my friends from out of town say if feel like Berkeley. Then Mississippi Ave started with street fairs, then a music scene and has now had a lot of redevelopment. Alberta Street is still a work in progress. It is well know for its wild last Thursday street fair in the summer.
