Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
I am pleasant company. I accept a wide variety of ideas, beliefs and behaviors; polemic is not my style. I love words. I'm learning french. I feel a strong kinship with people who comport with cordiality as the Portlanders do. My wife and I relocated here September 12th 2016 with the help of her daughter. I am from Brooklyn NY Where I practiced orthodontics. I hope to volunteer teach ortho at OHSU. My preferred greeting is a gentle "fist-bump". My new home in Eastmoreland is somewhat magical being surrounded by an abundance and variety of plant and tree life. I thank my dear wife who finessed this cross-coast leap. Greetings to you my new neighbors and hopefully friends, Ted Rothstein :-)

What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Eastmoreland: C'est tr'es raffine'-un mini-paradise
Nothing ventured; nothing gained
A rose to the living is worth more than a wreath to the dead
