Exploring N. Mississippi Ave in Portland

I’m still working on exploring Portland neighborhoods with my film cameras. A couple of weeks ago, on a nice sunny day, I took a walk down N. Mississippi Ave with my Hasselblad and my Holga. N. Mississippi has gone from grungy to trendy fairly quickly. At one time the pedestrian bridge that connects the neighborhood to the MAX light rail station had to be closed because of crime, but it is now open again which makes the neighborhood attractive to those who work in the city.

The street is lined with restaurants, pubs, galleries, clothing stores and independent coffee shops. I stopped to eat at Mac and Cheese (yum) followed by a cup of coffee at Fresh Pot.

Homes are still affordable here but they are going up in price…..rapidly.

It’s just a fun place to explore.
