Northwest District Reviews
Genuinely a charming, urban, busy, full of life neighborhood. I live on NW 16th and W Burnside - right in the center of Portland. I can walk nearly anywhere in the west side in 15 minutes, from the NW District, to Goose Hollow, the Pearl, and Downtown. I can bike over to the east side within 7 minutes and the amount of shops, grocery, coffee, and entertainment in the area cannot be beat. Proud to own a condo in this area and do not have plans to leave soon. The convenience is unmatched.
What I love is the close proximity to everything; stores, my bank, transportation. But there is a ridiculous amount of houseless folks, some on drugs, and some just lost in their mental challenges. This makes it feel unsafe sometimes and dirty. Dirty can mean anything from litter to excrement.
From the waterfront of the Willamette up through Old Town/ Chinatown to the Pearl District up to NW 23rd area and then into the West Hills and Forest Park, Northwest District is a sight to behold for any visitor or local.
