I have lived in the same house for as long as I have lived, I have seen the Piedmont neighborhood change so much. As a kid, the neighborhood was rough, at night me and my siblings learned the difference between fireworks and gunshots. We became used to the constant wailing of sirens. Over the years though its grown, I never encounter gunshots anymore, and now its quiet.

It went from a noisy neighborhood to a quiet one, the neighbors are amazing and its beautiful. I have grown with the neighborhood too, I've learned to be tough in a world that is harsh. I know that everything changes now. One of the worst neighborhoods is now one of the most sought after.

Piedmont is home.

Lots of amazing food options ranging from fancier restaurants to food carts or microbreweries. There is also a great mix of cuisines in the area: Italian, Thai, Southern Comfort, Mexican, etc. Lots of great places for drinks, but there aren't really any dancing options around.
Job prospects are only okay. Because Portland is a fairly large city, jobs do exist, but they certainly aren't extremely easy to come by. There are a number of tech companies (Intel), and Nike and Adidas have their headquarters here...maybe people have jobs in those companies.
