Approximately seventy miles inland from the Pacific Coast, the City of Portland is on the northern border of Oregon, bisected by the glistening waters of the Willamette River. Providing a picturesque backdrop for Portland’s skyline, Mount Hood is found approximately fifty miles east.
Portland is divided into “five quadrants” with the Willamette River separating the North and Northeast sectors and the Southeast and Southwest sectors, and Burnside Street serving as the north/south divider.

The Northeast area is found north of Burnside Street and east of Williams Avenue, while the North “quadrant” is found west of Williams Avenue and east of the Willamette River.
