Northeast Portland is a popular area for people visiting Portland. It has a good selection of microbrews, local coffee roasters, independent businesses and restaurants. It also has a good public transit system. The urban portions of the city of portland as a whole has a quaint, community oriented feel to it. I give it a 3 out of 5 rating to live in because there is very little to do in NE Portland but drink and eat. However, museums and nature is nearby if you don't mind a moderate drive. Most native Portlanders stay with their respective neighborhoods.
This area of Portland has a lot to offer between local parks, shopping, restaurant, and small neighborhood feel. It is also very easy to get to other parts of the city from here. The people in the neighborhood are friendly and there seems to be relatively few crimes.
There are a lot of car break ins and homeless digging through recycle bins but that is not unique to this neighborhood. Pretty standard across the city
