St. Johns Reviews
I love St. John's. It is the last place in Portland that still has a bit of the "old" Portland feel, for now.
Lots of stores makes it easy to access whatever you need but the traffic is horrible and some areas are not that safe. Seems to be a lot of low income areas and apartments or super expensive apartments
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.
I have been living in St. Johns for 3 years. It is a wonderful part of town and includes everything you need! It is getting expensive though, and I'm sure I will be priced out pretty soon!
I love this neighborhood. A short drive to downtown Portland and yet St Johns feels like a small and close knit community. Easy access to food carts, local businesses, farmers market and more.
Cute little neighborhood at the very edge of Portland with a distinct small-town vibe. This neighborhood has it all, and is on the rise!
St. Johns is a sweet neighborhood spot with a diverse cast of characters. Like many neighborhoods on the fringes of Portland though, it is quickly becoming more and more developed. This can be great if you're looking for a variety in restaurants, bars, and kitchy coffee shops, but also challenging if you are on a budget for your apartment hunt. Some residents with lower incomes are being pushed out. This being said, the main strip is small, about a five block radius, and locals are friendly and welcoming.
