Most neighborhoods east of 82nd are deemed high crime, but that's not the case. If anything, they are relatively low income to the rest of the city. I have experienced no crime, though people drive much worse in this area. In general, it's a beautiful area that is somewhat neglected by the city of Portland. With a little city investment, it could be a gem in this city!

Too many have watched Portlandia and the Oregon Field Guide and are moving here in droves, so Cost of Living and Rent and Housing prices are going through the roof. What you dont know is that the governments are seriously cheap so support and infrastructure are lacking. The new comers are mostly cyber-jockeys and will never build any business that will provide family wage jobs, so they use up resources and drive up prices and complain about the rednecks-DUH its a mostly rural state and there are hunters and fishermen here. Many with attitudes going back to the fifties; it is not the hot bed of PC and progressive ideas. We have had toxic hazards from long time industry and lead from old pipes that the city doesnt care about. There are many neighborhoods in the city limits with unpaved roads and no sidewalks, As a homeowner if there is an accident its on you. Mold abounds, black mold. Everyone eventually gets sinus infections or severe allergies because it rains constantly. Roofers are always busy here. Gas and food are higher in this state than in either neighboring state. Too many laws and business persons who made sure progress didnt come to Oregon has made consumer prices higher-even for the food grown in the area. Your job WILL pay you about 25% less than other job markets. It is not a good place to live anymore unless you are over 70k per year. We pay state income tax. The state university system sucks and we are ranked 47th overall. Think twice.
In my opinion, the living atmosphere in Portland overall is great! The environment, the people, the life style...etc are pretty loving and feel like home.
