Pedestrian-friendly with cute shops, cafes and restaurants. It has curvy, hilly roads and is not far from Lewis & Clark College and PCC Sylvania. There are bus lines that run through the neighborhood, a nice park (Gabriel Park) and Wilson High School-- one of the best in Portland.
Some homes are beautiful, while others are modest or some times dumpy looking. It is an eclectic neighborhood. Artsy feel, not too far away from downtown.
