Countdown to retirement: 37 days

37th and Hawthorne, Southeast Portland:
our neighborhood

The Bagdad Theater -- old time theater/pub owned by the McMenamins,
who work magic with old buildings in the region.
Movies, author appearances, cheap dates!

Bread and Ink Cafe - yummy food!

One of the lesser Powell's Bookstores - still a formidable shop!
That's my pal, Paola, visiting from New York.
(My pal Paola at Powell's - say that 3 times fast! )

Hawthorne Street Cafe

The Red Light- eclectic clothing store.

Global Exchange storefront

Hawthorne Boulevard was named after Dr. J.C. Hawthorne, co-founder of Oregon’s first mental hospital. It was originally called Asylum Avenue. The Hawthorne District is an old funky - now somewhat upscale - neighborhood. Good restaurants, fun shops, Powell's Books. It's like a street fair every day in the summer. You never know what you'll see here. 37th Avenue is the heart of the neighborhood.
