Portland is the largest and most populus city in Oregon with an estimated population of over 650,000. The Willamette river flows north through downtown and creates a natural boundary between east and west Portland while Burnside St is the general divider between north and south. Although there are five “regions” of Portland, they are still known as quadrants- Northwest Portland, Southwest Portland, Southeast Portland, Northeast Portland and North Portland. Some people also include East Portland to signify the eastern most portions of both Southeast Portland and Northeast Portland. Although the downtown area is officially within the Northwest region, it is also considered the City Center.
Over time, each of these regions has developed its own unique characteristics in terms of lifestyle, culture, demographics, home values and commuting patterns. For example, Northwest Portland attracts a lot of families looking for large homes and yards while Southeast Portland tends to attract people who are looking to be close to the city center with a wide variety of restaurants, entertainment and cultural events.
