Portland: Places to Explore

Northeast Portland

Containing the Rose Garden basketball arena, the Lloyd Center Mall, the Alberta Arts District, and some of the city's poorest and most affluent neighborhoods, Portland's Northeast quadrant is diverse to say the least. Once the epicenter of the city's African American community, the inner parts of Northeast have slowly gentrified over the last half century. In the Irvington, Laurelhurst, and Alameda neighborhoods, you'll find some of the largest, most historic homes in town. Lined with a number of high-quality restaurants, bars, galleries, and boutiques, Alberta Street hosts a bustling street art fair the last Thursday of every month during summer (primarily between 12th and 31st avenues), and the Hollywood District, built around the 1920s-era Hollywood Theater, offers a number of interesting shops as well.
