I can see how North Portland is developing into the hottest spot in town. Today I took my wife to an appointment in the neighborhood and took a walk exploring terrific storefronts, restaurants, carts and a total renewal of what it use to look like. I can see how The Pearl is getting major attention shifted to the North end. The photo below is the historic sign that hangs over a great coffee shop called "The Fresh Pot" located at 4001 N. Mississippi Ave. Friendly kids running this old drug store and a packed house. My visit to this area blew me away!
