I love this building and this neighborhood. I walk to work everyday, in the nearby Pearl District. I love how I can stroll to nearby restaurants and Cinema 21 (our local independent theatre), or the neighborhood school park where I can gather with neighbors to watch the annual swift migration in the fall. A picnic in the Rose Garden is just a 20 minute walk away, or I can venture further with a walk up to the Hoyt Arboretum or The Japanese Garden, with it's new expansion. While I'm a local, born and raised in NE Portland, as an adult, I've learned to fall in love with this city from a new perspective, one based on a combination of my familiarity with its unique streets, homes, nooks and crannies and parks, as well as the food and culture that has matured through the many, many people that have moved here.
Drive west for an hour and you’ll find yourself deep in the rolling hills of our wine country, surrounded by vineyards, apples, pears and hazelnuts, or drive east for 1.5 hours and you’ll find yourself at the base of Mt Hood for a day of skiing, mountain lake swimming or hiking and huckleberry picking – my favorite!
Look north on a clear day and you’ll see our local volcano, Mt St Helens, which blew its top on May 18th 1980, and you may also get a peak of Mt Rainier and Mt Adams as well. If you’re able to get just a bit more elevation by strolling around the neighborhood, you’ll also see Mt Hood to the east.
