Portland is an active metro center that defies the stereotypes of urban living. The city is divided into eight regions which represent distinct and close-knit communities. Northeast Portland's real estate options include a variety of listings for single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses, and land for custom building.
Portland differs from other cities of its size because it offers an extensive park system, strong sense of community pride, excellent mass transit options, and a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly layout. The northeast area of the city is comprised of the following neighborhoods: Woodlawn, Vernon, Concordia, Alameda, Grant Park, Sullivan's Gulch, Irvington, Sabin, Eliot, Boise, Wilshire, Beaumont, Rose Way and Humboldt. Eliot, Irvington and Sullivan's Gulch are located just a few miles north of downtown Portland. The remaining northeast neighborhoods are within 15 minutes of downtown by car or by MAX, Portland's light rail system. Residents may be established homeowners, families, urban professionals or artists.
Popular activities are mainly centered on enjoying the eccentricity of the Portland culture. Coffee houses, bookstores, clothing boutiques, pubs and bars are all local gathering places. The entertainment and arts scenes are lively; music performances can be found throughout the city, and the streets are peppered with art galleries and theaters, particularly in Concordia and the Alberta Arts District. A walk through the historic Irvington neighborhood is equally entertaining. As well, neighborhood parks provide athletic fields and courts, playgrounds, picnic areas and walking trails.
