Close to school (UP), accessible public transportation, friendly people and mostly quiet evenings. Some crime, but I don't feel unsafe- espeically with UP's Public Safety roaming the streets.

People can work anywhere here; chain restaurants, Starbucks, Fred Meyer, Goodwill, restaurants, other grocery stores. That's basically the only types of jobs in my are of the neighborhood unless you're a dentist, mechanic, or teacher. The farther you go beyond North Portland, such as Northeast, there are hospital jobs and housing jobs.
You can get a lot of stuff around here. Groceries, car parts, food, and there's a lot of convenience stores. In St. John's there are a lot of mom and pop shops and restaurants, but we have big companies and chain restaurants too. There are a few really good taquerias and food carts that everybody loves. Most wouldn't go out of their way to come here but the residents really enjoy it.
