Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
Am a 64 year old, divorced, granny who moved here from KY four years ago because my daughters and grandkids live here. I was a legal secretary for over 25 years. Now retired.
What do you love about Portland?
I love the people here, all races and from everywhere you can imagine. Very friendly. I love the MAX. It takes you anywhere. My biggest interest is the mountains and beaches so close with beautiful places to camp and enjoy the outdoors.

What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
I love St. John's ...it reminds me of some of my old neighborhoods back home. Love to sit in Patti's and listen to all the stories about St. Johns and some of the people associated with developing the town and the progress it has made.
