"Where We Live"

There is so much going on in Portland's Northwest neighborhoods. Nob Hill contains the Historic Alphabet District which is blessed with a wealth of historic properties. Kings Heights is further up the hill. Some of the homes in the area boast three, four or even five mountain views when the sun comes out. Willamette Heights is nestled in Forest Park at the north end of the area. Slabtown is rapidly becoming a vibrant neighborhood. The popular NW 21st and 23rd Avenues anchor the retail scene but off the beaten path there are treasures of shops and restaurants to be found.
