Tucked between two trendy Northwest Portland neighborhoods (the Pearl and Nob Hill), Slabtown is a unique mix of residential and industrial buildings. The trendy area, which boasts walkable streets, plentiful shopping, coffee, restaurants and art galleries, is within walking distance of many other local hot spots. From here, you can easily access downtown, the Pearl District, Nob Hill and Forest Park, either on foot or via Portland Streetcar. But feel free to stay put — everything you need can be found in this lively, friendly neighborhood.
