Portland is, it has often been said, a city of neighborhoods. It's one of our city's most lovable qualities—the sense that you might turn a corner and discover a flourishing retail strip or a pocket park you'd never known existed. Most recently, the city famously formalized its sixth quadrant, or should that be sixth sextant? Regardless, when considering where to put down roots, Portlanders have lots to consider. We've highlighted many of the city's most distinctive hoods in our new-and-updated neighborhood guide (suburbanites, you're in here too!).

Don't see your neck of the woods? This guide, like our city, will grow in the coming weeks. Check back in soon.
