About South East Portland Neighborhoods
Portland is divided into north and south at Burnside- and east and west at the Willamette River. So SE Portland goes from the Willamette River east all the way to Gresham, and from Burnside it goes south all the way to Milwaukie. There are alot of diverse and unique neighborhoods within this subdivision of Portland- from quirky eclectic Hawthorne to gorgeous and stately Eastmoreland. Here is a guide to most of the SE neighborhoods of Portland. I've done a quick review of all the neighborhoods below- and have done an in-depth report of some of my favorites. Read through the neighborhoods below- click on the links to learn more- and start your introduction to SE Portland!

Brooklyn is located along the east side of the Willamette River, south of Powell, mostly north of Holgate and out to about SE 26th Ave. It is mostly residential, although there is some commercial and industrial in the blocks closest to the river. It is an older neighborhood- alot of the houses built in the early 1900's- Read more about Brooklyn and it's history. It's really interesting! Click here to see cool maps, links & photos!

Creston goes from SE 26th out to Foster Rd, and it is between Powell and Holgate- so it isn't too far from Reed College- really close to downtown...just go across the Ross Island Bridge. It has alot of commercial and a little industrial close to the river- but it also has alot of cute little older homes in quiet neighborhoods. So it's a good place to live if you want to live close in to Portland and not be in any of the trendy neighborhoods.
