At some point in time we all have zip code envy. We have artists like Lorde making reference to post code envy in her hit single Royals and iconic 1990s televisions shows like 90210.
One of my favorite zip codes in Portland is 97209. The zip code covers the area of NW 21st down burnside to the river to encompass the Pearl District, Old Town and parts of Nob Hill.
The Pearl District is one of my favorite places in the city, with several parks, hip art galleries and boutiques to shop. The vibe is sophisticated but laid back. The Pearl has become a restaurant haven. At any point within the area you are surrounded by must eat restaurants. Some standouts include Oba, Andina, Blue Hour & Piazza Italia. Lets not forget about First Thursday, a district-wide celebration that occurs on the first Thursday of each and every month. Originally a gathering of art collectors and dealers, the celebration has grown to a monthly event of over ten thousand people that includes art enthusiasts, wine aficionados and scenesters looking to see and be seen.
The Pearl District Condos neighborhood is home to many older brick buildings and was formerly an industrial area which is now being converted into unique residential lofts and condos. There is also some new construction of high-rise condos, and it is sometimes compared to New York City’s SoHo neighborhood due to it’s chic blend of old industrial combined with new modern luxury.
