Neighborhood Watch: Produce Row

One of the things I think make Portland so unique is the City's neighborhoods. Many are unique in location, vibe, and in particular, look. We love being tourists in our town, any reason to stroll around a particular neighborhood is an invitation we'll always accept. We love warehouse districts. If only these buildings could talk, and the Produce Row neighborhood buildings are gems. A bit rough, dirty and disheveled, with a homeless community to match, this area is one of our favorite neighborhoods in the whole city. There's so many great buildings and hidden treasures in just a few blocks. Maybe it's the lead windows, the awning covered loading areas, all the beautifully aged brick or maybe we just like boxy warehouse buildings. All we can say is riding your bike through this part of town is a real treat.
