Kerns is relatively close-in to downtown Portland and a fairly urban neighborhood. As Kerns covers a smallish area, there is not a lot of residential property within Kerns, but what there is consists of older east Portland homes, many of which have been converted over the years into multi-family units and multiplexes. Portland four-squares and large Craftsman style bungalows line the streets, tucked into the more commercial areas. Kerns has many popular Portland restaurants and locally owned businesses.
