Neighborhood: East Portland

This historic part of Portland was formerly its own city. When East Portland, Albina (to the north) and Portland became one in 1891, they formed the third largest city in the West, behind only San Francisco and Denver. On the east side, tall old buildings tower above now-abandoned streetcar tracks. The area's founder, James Stephens, ran the first ferry service across the Willamette River. Back then, before Portland earned its nickname "City of Bridges", people thought it was crazy to have a city divided by the river.
