A Primer for Newcomers

Portland is divided into five main zones - Northwest, Southwest, Northeast, Southeast, and North. Each area is subdivided into named districts or neighborhoods, each with its own unique flair. We’re particularly fond of North Portland and are excited to share a few of our favorite NoPo neighborhoods.
