The Parkrose area had been a small farming and residential suburb of Portland until the 1920s and was annexed by Portland in 1980. Located close to the airport and near major roads, commuting from the mostly residential suburban neighborhoods of Parkrose and Parkrose Heights is easy. The busier streets provide ample shopping and dining opportunities. The Parkrose/Sumner Transit Center is served by the Red line of the Max Light Rail and I-205 runs through the neighborhoods.
Argay Terrace is a Northeast Portland subdivision primarily built in the 1960s.

Vernon is located in Northeast Portland. It is bordered by the King, Woodlawn, Concordia, and Sabin neighborhoods.

Cully is a culturally and economically diverse mix of commercial and residential development. The modest homes on large lots are an urban farmer’s dream. In addition, recent improvements to streets and bike routes and the promise of a 25-acre park prove that Cully is truly an emerging neighborhood. Among residents, there is a strong sense of community identity and active local involvement to improve the quality and livability of the area.
Often overlooked because it is somewhat tucked away and borders industrial areas to the north, Woodlawn is a great, old neighborhood finally coming into its own.

A number of new businesses and restaurants have popped up in recent last few years, primarily around the gem of the neighborhood – Dekum Triangle.
Renamed for its historic 1920s Hollywood Theatre, the Hollywood neighborhood is a mixed commercial and residential area and tends to serve as a shopping district to the adjacent neighborhoods.

Largely dominated by the Lloyd Center shopping mall (complete with its own indoor ice skating rink!), plus a lot of chain restaurants, this neighborhood feels unlike any other in Portland.
