Name: Julie Location: Close-in, East Side City: Portland, Oregon My Home: 410 sq. ft. historic studio condo in the Belmont area of South East Portland The Belmont area is pretty awesome. It's very walkable. There are many grocery stores, farmer's markets, food co-ops, urban farming stores, vintage clothing and furniture shops, parks, independent movie theaters and oodles of cafes, restaurants, food carts, and bicycles.
