"An excellent place to live"

I currently live on NE Broadway St, a few blocks east of 82nd Ave. and before I lived here, my grandmother did, so I know the area fairly well. That being said, of all the places I have ever lived, and all the streets I have ever lived on. This one is my favorite.

Jason Lee Elementary school is just a few blocks away, and although no Portland Public School is particularly good, I think Jason Lee is as close to good as we get. The high school kids feed into here is James Madison high school, and though I may be biased, since I graduated from there in 2004, MHS is one of the better PPS high schools to go to in terms of experience. It is a very diverse school, for a fairly diverse neighborhood, but is overall a pleasant place to go to school.

I live in a very quiet neighborhood, the only form of noise pollution we ever get is the occasional barking dog. There is very little traffic, very few problems with the neighbors, or with people doing things they shouldn't be doing in the neighborhood. It is very close to Hancock Park, and Rocky Butte, as well as the Gateway shopping center.

The 33 and 72 busses both run about a block away, and it's a very short walk to catch the MAX at 82nd or at the Gateway Transit Center. So where public transportation is considered, we've got things pretty well under wraps.

The neighbors are a fairly quiet bunch, but they're polite, and they keep their yards clean, and like I said, there's never any real trouble. I lived on Thompson streed, and Tillamook which are both only a couple of blocks north, but they're nowhere near as pleasant as Broadway is. I love living here, and you would probably like it too.
