Portlandia: The Dream of the '90s is Alive

I figured I'd start a new thread for 2013, I've got about 400+ pictures and counting right now, so here's a small appetizer for you guys. I'll be posting more pictures of different neighborhoods every so often. Enjoy.

It's as though Brooklyn and Vancouver had a baby, only different...and better.

I've gotta figure out a way to get there some day in the near future.

More is always welcome.

Thank you for these awesome pics. This showcases the more urban side of Portland, instead of the suburban (but still awesome) parts of NE and SE Portland that I'm more familiar with.

That Chevy was SO sweet.


That is a condo building on NW Northrup St. at 11th.

It is insane that I haven't been to Portland. It makes me angry at myself. My little brother lives there, too. Argh! Soon ...

downtown and the pearl are feeling the most dense and lively as ive ever seen since moving here in 97. the upside of the recession has been a dramatic increase of tourists coming thru town. i think we're finally on the radar for domestic travelers. 15 years ago, not so much.

as stated, a hotel. i rode by a week or so ago and the sign claimed it was the pearl districts first hotel which i had to think about for a sec, but yeah, aside from fleabag SRO's in chinatown, there is no tourist accomodations north of burnside.

Have you noticed the HUNDREDS of out of state license plates around town? Portland seems like a hot road trip spot. It's either that, or everybody is just moving here...

Well, if you see a California plate with a Sacramento Kings frame, you know who it is!

Great set. Someone's clearly spent a lot of time downtown lately.
