Geography and Transportation
It’s easy to navigate the Pearl. Avenues, which run north to south, are ordered such that street numbers increase as you move west from the river. The first letter of east-west street names go by the alphabet; as you move north from Burnside, you’ll find Couch St, then Davis St, and so on to Yeon St. This logical grid scheme makes it easy to find a particular intersection. The Portland Streetcar puts Downtown and Portland State University a convenient, 4-minute ride away and puts shopping along trendy NW 23rd Ave within striking distance. The area is well served by public transportation; one can catch the MAX as well as many of Tri-met’s bus routes along the bus mall on NW 5th and 6th.
