Neighborhood Suggestions?

I'm a self-employed artist, and will be moving to Portland in the Fall. I'd like to live in a neighborhood where there are other creative folks, doing their thing. Other factors that are important to me in a neighborhood are a sense of community, proximity to parks and bike paths, and easy access to public transportation; someplace that has plenty of social gathering spots, such as cafes, pubs, little restaurants, etc. and activities available like yoga, dance, open-mike and music jams.

"Hi Faliscia, I too will be moving to Portland this year, but not until the Fall. Since you're a bit ahead of me, I'm wondering if you might have any advice?  Did you find what you were looking for? And, if so, what resources did you…"

"What is important for you to have in a neighborhood?  Do you already have a job, and if so, which part of town?"

Profile Information

Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
Will be moving to Portland this Fall.
About Me:
I am a mixed-media artist, and I love to create. I owned an art gallery on Cape Cod for seven years before moving to Santa Fe in 2006. Since then I've worked as a therapeutic riding facilitator and a palliative caregiver. I enjoy working with people and animals.
I'm a big outdoors fan. Some of my favorite outdoor activities are biking, skiing, kayaking, and sailing. I am passionate about music, dance, and theater, and I love to perform.
What do you love about Portland?
I love it that Portland is so environmentally conscious and committed to green-living. The many beautiful parks, the rivers, the clean air, and its proximity to the ocean and Mount Hood are all things I love. The bike paths are one of the best and most innovate aspects of Portland, and I've heard the public transportation is great. Then, last but not least, are the neighborhoods. I love the idea of a big city made up of many small communities, each with its own personality.
My music:
You name it, I love it! Especially if you can dance to it, and don't laugh, but one of my favorite things to do is sing karaoke.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
I don't know yet, but I'm having fun exploring the options through this website. There are so many possibilities, it's actually a little bit overwhelming. I feel like I'm doing a major research project! - LoL
Favorite quote:
If you can fix it, why worry? And if you can't fix it, why worry?
