St. Johns Reviews
St. John's is a great little neighborhood in north Portland. There is a great food, music and entertainment scene. One thing that is very unique about St. John's is the support for our local businesses, many places in the neighborhood are family owned and operated and it creates a homey feel. Everything is extremely accessible and there is lots to do! From Cathedral Park under the St. John's bridge to catching a movie at the local theater or attending one of the many delicious restaurants and food carts in the area.
Great location, no need to go outside of St. Johns to get all your needs. It has great bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and food trucks. Good community with a lot of diversity, something that most of Portland lacks. Overall good place to live, just be sure to lock your car and don't ever leave anything of value in there. Unfortunately it is still Portland it still has its Portland things such as homelessness and drug use, so do yourself a favor and don't set yourself up for a broken window and a bad morning.
St. John's is a beautiful small town within the city. That being said, there are a few negatives that must be said up front: there is a HUGE homelessness/crime/drug problem here and throughout Portland. I'm baffled by how blatant the issues are but not nearly enough is being done. The home values/real estate market here is skyrocketing but it feels like a bubble waiting to burst. If it's not a bubble bursting, it's an influx of non-Oregonians coming from costlier cities changing the entire vibe here. Aside from all THAT, it's awesome here. Beautiful scenery, friendly people, descent food here and there, tons of parks and lots of outdoorsy types :-)
