Did you know?

  • You may hear locals refer to Northwest as “The Alphabet District.” This historic moniker refers to the alphabetical naming of the area’s east-west streets, from Burnside (Couch, Davis, Everett, etc.) to Wilson.

    Knowing that the streets are named in alphabetical order can be very helpful in navigating; if you’re on 23rd and Glisan and want to get to 23rd and Irving, just check the next street sign — if it reads “Hoyt,” you’re going the right way!
