"A pleasant residential area"

On and around Fremont Street between 65th and 82nd is a fairly pleasant residential area where most of my friends growing up lived. The area nearest to 72nd however would be my most recommended segment. 72nd is noticeable north of Fremont because of its large park blocks, which are excellent for pick up games of football, soccer, and freeze tag.

If you're North of Fremont you're very close to Harvey Scott Elementary School (which I attended) and which is also a pretty good school, however, since Portland recently went back to a K-8 system, I would actually recomment my middle school, which is now also an elementary school, Roseway Heights (formerly Gregory Heights). You will also be close to James Madison High School which I graduated from in 2004, and is one of the better schools in the district (though I may be biased).

As far as other attractions go, most of the stores are big chains, there's a Hollywood Video, a Safeway, a Subway, and a Papa Murphy's Take and Bake pizza. However, there are a few places near the area worth mention. Fairley's Pharmacy is an old style pharmacy with a lunch counter. I'm not sure if they started serving food there again, but I know they have a pretty "neat-o" malt. Annie's Doughnuts is another good place, though there are better doughnuts in town (See: My review of SW 2nd Ave.) Annie's is still very good.

There is a large Asian influence in this area, which means a lot of good Asian (and Asian-influenced) restaurants. I would recommend Thien Hong, Royal Thai (which is across the street), Pho Vinh, Pho Oregon, and Ohana Hawaiian Cafe. If you've never had Vietnamese food which is served at both Pho restaurants and Thien Hong, I recommend pho (beef noodle soup), gui con (salad rolls), banh xeo (a crepe filled with shrimp and pork, and dipped in peanut sauce) or lau (a vietnamese hotpot).

Overall, this is a nice neighborhood if your kids are old enough to be able to look out for traffic, and if you don't mind a lot of cars whizzing by (but only on Fremont, your number streets are pretty quiet).
