The people here are awful and nobody minds their own business. I do not know much about the area as I have only lived here for one year but overall I cannot wait to move out of Portland Oregon in general.

This is the best area to live! There are always plenty of things to do. The locals are friendly and welcoming. The neighborhoods are extremely walkable and very easy to navigate. I moved here from Florida, and my only regret is that I didn't move sooner!
The city is great, everything I could possibly want to do is here, lots of opportunities. The bad stuff includes traffic, shady people in the area, never any quiet, and too much pollution to see the stars
