Introducing the Kenilworth-Abernathy (Portland) neighborhood blog - April 23, 2004

Today marks my foray into the OregonLive blog world with my Kenilworth-Abernathy neighborhood blog. I have introduced the neighborhood, with its boundaries of Holgate to the south, 26th Ave and the Willamette River to the west, Hawthorne to the north, and 50th, 52nd and Foster to the east.

It's a diverse neighborhood, full of lower-middle-class homes and coffee shops and strip clubs and schools and hip restaurants and check-cashing places and apartment complexes and good sushi and cheap beer. It's a neighborhood where life is lived wonderfully and well and barely scraping by. It's such a very Portland place, full of all the sorts of places and people that make Portland real. Come by and see me.
