One of the most coveted neighborhoods in Portland, eclectic ‘Historic Irvington’ is not easily described. With easy on-ramp access to major freeways as well as bridges to Downtown and the Pearl District, Irvington feels as urban as can be, while at the same time, evoking a feeling of Old Portland with its broad tree-lined residential streets and notable architecture.
With Grant Park to the East and Irvington Park to the West, Irvington is a prime place for those who are active and like spending time outdoors. Most of the streets are also very bike and pedestrian friendly which makes it a comfortable place to navigate even without a car. Both Broadway and Fremont, Irvington’s borders to the North and South, feature shop after shop and restaurant after restaurant – most of which have a chic or hip vibe.
A collection of all styles and sizes, most homes in the area are extremely well maintained and boast long front yards and porches. As one of Portland’s oldest and well-established neighborhoods, many of the homes are actually on the National Register of Historic Places. In fact, some of Portland’s most grandiose and recognizable homes can be found in Irvington.
