Woodlawn is one of the farthest north of the NE Portland neighborhoods. In the early 1900's, people used to cross the Columbia River from Vancouver and come off near Woodlawn- it had alot of nice homes built then- but it has deteriorated alot once the bridge went in. It is slowly being fixed up- it's one unique feature that gives it some class, is the diagonal way the streets come together in the middle of the neighborhood. There are several parks nearby- and the way the houses are being restored and remodeled, it probably won't be too long before it comes into it's own again. It borders on Columbia Blvd to the north, Ainsworth to the south, MLK to the west and NE 21st to the east. The neighborhoods it borders are Piedmont neighborhood to the west, Vernon and King to the south and Concordia to the East.
