Portland is home to an array of diverse and distinct communities. It has 94 formally recognized neighborhoods, which doesn’t even begin to include the outlying areas, all of which are considered part of the greater metropolitan area. With that large of an area to cover, we couldn’t possibly cover every community. However, we try to give you a feel for Portland’s five sections: Southwest, Southeast, Northwest, North and Northeast. Burnside Street is the boundary between north and south, and the Willamette River divides the eastern and western sections. North of Burnside Street, the river curves west and in place of it Williams Avenue is used as a divider. Between Williams and the river is the fifth, North, quadrant.
