What's it like living in Portland these days? It's been quite the year for the area. New role for work may bring me into the metro area so I'm curious.

Is this Boise area the poor area of town?

This is on Mississippi, a very fast growing neighborhood.

Portland is weird right now, lots of small businesses closing and fucked up shit happening in local government. :dunno:

It's a gentrifying part of town, a partial contributor to this unrest.
I live in a far out part of Portland that's quiet for the most part. Until this incident the unrest was really just isolated to a few blocks downtown and occasionally the police union hq which is a bit closer to me (still miles away).

Sure once the eviction moratorium ends the shit will really hit the fan.

Thanks for the info. How realistic is it to live in Vancouver, Wa and commute into downtown infrequently?

Have you ever thought about moving to Corvallis, Eugene, or Bend? Spent a week in Bend earlier this year and loved it aside from how remote it is.

The evening commute from PDX to Vancouver is brutal. It took me an hour to get from downtown across the bridge using I5. Of course this was in The Before Times so who the fuck knows what commutes will look like in the future. I work remote but I think the long term is they will have us do a hybrid WFH so I have to stay in the PDX area.

If you can afford a place in Bend (prices there are high just like in Portland) and work remote more power to you. It's a nice area.

If this is accurate, good. The neighborhood rallying to stop unlawful eviction that would otherwise go unnoticed.
hopefully the sleazy investor trying to cheat these people out of an 8 figure asset gets publicly hanged.
