From artsy Mississippi Avenue to the historic homes of Irvington, Northeast Portland has something to appeal to every taste. If you’re looking for urban living, homes with good bones, tree-lined streets, city parks, and local businesses, you’ll want to consider Northeast Portland.
Originally one of Portland’s streetcar suburbs, Northeast Portland underwent a great building boom from 1890-1913. During that time, NE Broadway, one of the district’s main thoroughfares, evolved naturally into a busy strip of restaurants and shops to support Portland’s growing Eastside population.
The older neighborhoods of Alameda, Irvington, Beaumont-Wilshire feature mature, leafy tree-lined avenues. Home styles lean toward early 20th century craftsman houses with big porches. Shops and restaurants line the main streets of NE Sandy, Fremont, and of course, Broadway.
A Thriving Community
This laid-back section of town is getting noticed. The light rail line has begun to spur development along N. Interstate, and shops and restaurants have become a local destination along N. Killingsworth, N. Denver, N. Lombard and N. Mississippi.
North Mississippi Avenue in the Boise neighborhood has become synonymous with urban hipness, as an arty crowd has been drawn to the area for its music scene and urban authenticity. Visit North Portland and take a look around at the many local shops and restaurants, like a popular breakfast place called Gravy, delicious Mexican cuisine at Porque No?, and every kind of cheesy delight you can imagine at the Mac & Cheesery.
