The Overlook neighborhood does just that. The park with the same name sits on a bluff in North Portland, overlooking the river, the bridges, downtown, and, of course, Mt. Hood. It’s homey and quiet, with wide, tree-lined streets tucked around Interstate Avenue. The neighbors have a quarterly get-to-know-each-other block parties and lovingly tended-to gardens. It feels precious and protected, but it’s connected and close to Downtown Portland and North Portland. Catch the Max and spot all the vintage Portland neon signs along Interstate!
"This is the only town I feel safe enough to eat out of a random truck on the side of the road or in an abandoned parking lot."
