Description

 

Just across the Willamette River from downtown, Portland's Central Eastside blends warehouses, train tracks and a rising tide of microbreweries and after-hours hot spots, plus access to riverside recreation. 'Bridgetown's' newest bridge, Tilikum Crossing, links the area to the city's Southside Waterfront. The cable-stayed structure has the distinction of being the only bridge in the country dedicated only to light rail, buses, bicycles and pedestrians. Even from afar the bridge stands out. LEDs light up the entire bridge, changing color and pattern based on how fast, deep and cold the river is flowing.

An historic Central Eastside high school is reinvented as a music venue called Revolution Hall, hosting a steady lineup of local and touring indie rock, folk and pop acts. Mural art is abundant here, the street paintings covering the outsides of businesses. These include an enormous snake that winds its way across several walls, and robots that ask, "What brings you joy?"
