Re: Portland Mamas
I've lived on the east side exclusively, both NE and SE since 1992 and there is nowhere else I'd want to live in Portland. If you want the classic old style homes, pedestrian friendly urban experience, the east side has it. I've NEVER been the victim of crime!
I love my neighborhood. I live in Sellwood. Other good choices are the Woodstock, Kennilworth and Brooklyn neighborhoods. If you have a healthy budget, Hawthorne, Alameda and Irvington are beautiful, but more expensive. Right now, North Portland is very trendy and has a lot of great energy. I don't know much about that area, but I know Mississippi and Alberta streets are centers of great artsy shops and restaurants.
