    Hey Guys,

    I am looking in the next several months. I am thinking about Portland. When I start looking for a place to live, any suggestions as to what part of town? I have a black lab that is about 93 lbs, so will need to allow big dogs.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I visited the city last year and I loved it. My favorite city I have been to.

    I know that the North East was fairly ugly. The entire west side was very nice (hills, parks downtown etc.) Areas like Laurelhurst and around Mt. Tabor park were gorgeous, although pretty residential. The Pearl District downtown is sort of the trendy loft area. I think generally the west side is more expensive. West and East are divided by the Willamette river while North and South are divided by Division Street so the city is fairly easy to navigate. The North in general is a bit rougher I think. Down along Hawthorne is nice too (SE side).

    But then again I don't live there so don't take anything I say too seriously.
