Although Northeast Portland is only minutes from downtown Portland, it feels a world away. This area contains some of Portland’s most diverse neighborhoods (and some of Portland’s most affordable real estate). It experienced a considerable upturn in the past few years, and the transition is picking up steam.
Enter North Mississippi Avenue in the Boise neighborhood. Mississippi Avenue is a thriving destination with indie shopping and a 1970’s college town feel. It’s a neighborhood in a time warp. A very good time warp—well worth an afternoon-to-evening stroll through the well curated shops and then dinner at one of the many top-notch eating establishments.
Or Alberta Arts, which is an enclave of small, independently owned and curated shops. Thing Groovers and Art Lovers beware; you’re going to find a lot to love on iconic Alberta Main Street, especially during the holiday season.
Another up and coming street in the area is North Williams in the Boise and Eliot neighborhoods, which is a designated bike corridor. I used to wince at the decay when we drove down this street, but today it is host to numerous trendy restaurants and artist-owned shops.
I can’t wait to get out of the car and explore them all, culminating with coffee at Ristretto Roasters and something delicious at Tasty and Sons, Lincoln, or half a dozen other choices. And the recent opening of New Seasons Market on the street seals the deal. There’s no turning back now.
If you’re young, hip, and looking for the urban lifestyle, Northeast Portland may ring your bell. There are plenty of homes of a certain vintage that have character but need a little tender loving care.
