Like the other Southwest neighborhoods, Multnomah’s streets are winding and surrounded by green. Parks and trees and back yards are old and huge. Many of the neighborhood streets are narrow, one-laners, with thick grass on either side instead of sidewalks. Some of those are even still gravel. The vibe is like a small town hidden in a big town. At the heart is quaint Multnomah Village. Its “main street” as artisan shops, bars, and restaurants. There’s a sign headed into the Village that says in loopy, Elementary School letters, “The Village in the Heart of Portland.” It's a perfect place for a stroll. There is no “where the tourists” go business listed on this page because, frankly, Multnomah is still trendy Portland’s best kept secret.
"Getting out in nature is relatively easy even within Portland city limits, with dozens of parks and greenway ped/bike paths... but these days it's probably fair to be aware that our houseless crisis is at a level we've never seen before, and a lot of homeless camps are nuzzled in these spaces. For safety, and respect, it may be a good idea to avoid being in these areas too early or too late, and probably never go alone."
Buying in Portland?
I can help you with that.
I promise not to be a weirdo.
