Growing up in SW’s Healy Heights, my world was small – the park, my friends nearby, and school. To this day, the people who lived as far as my bike would carry me are my closest friends, so this neighborhood will always have my heart.

Boise-Eliot is home to the Scout office, and I love the vibrancy and energy of this district with all of the restaurants, bars and boutiques within a short walk. Don’t miss the soft-serve at my current fave, Lovely’s Fifty Fifty.

The tall cedar and fir trees make Mt. Tabor feel like Portland, like home. Not to mention my wife grew up here. It is still close to shops and restaurants on Hawthorne and the small town feel of Montavilla’s farmers market. And there is just something about living on a volcano that I like.
Buckman is my favorite neighborhood. I love the old homes where you can tell families have lived in for many years. Also, you feel like you are right in the middle of Portland!
Beautiful and accessible, Piedmont is my favorite Portland neighborhood. Its tree lined streets and architecturally rich houses have been stewarded by working class folks for decades.
Having grown up in SW, I’m a huge fan of west Portland as a place for people looking to expand their searches. You may have to forgo multiple hip bars within walking distance, but you can get yourself a big yard and lots of privacy. Don’t be scared by the non-grid streets!
Concordia is closest to my heart and where I feel most at home. It offers easy, direct access to many other parts of the city while still being a village of its own with a bounty of amenities on NE Alberta Street.
Montavilla is the Portland neighborhood that most reminds me of the small town where I grew up. You can really get to know all of the business owners and neighbors. It has everything I need: movies at the Academy, pizza at East Glisan, coffee at Bipartisan, and treats at Hungry Heart Bakery. And it’s so close to trails and views at Mt Tabor.
Kenton is my closest and most emerging favorite. I bike or walk to the Kenton Farmers Market and love what’s happening on the cobblestone path (N. Denver) where there’s a library, fun retail (mostly recycled/vintage goods), kid friendly Posie’s cafe, and places to go have a bite and a beer!
I love the Kerns neighborhood in NE Portland. I love the lushness of the tree-lined streets and accessibility to everything: a movie at the Laurelhurst theater, great restaurants, coffee shops, pet stores, markets + more.
