Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Newcomer's Handbook® for Moving to and Living in Portland, over 500 pages long, contains detailed information on neighborhoods, getting settled, helpful services, child care and education, cultural life, and much more. Written by Bryan Geon, who has spent over a decade exploring Portland and the surrounding region, both as a long-time resident and serial newcomer, this book is the essential guide to Portland and the surrounding communities.Designed especially for individuals who are planning to move to Portland, Oregon or for those who have just arrived in the Rose City, this thirteenth title in the Newcomer's Handbook series provides in-depth neighborhood and community profiles, as well as chapters on getting settled, helpful services, childcare and education, transportation, getting involved, green living, and much more.In detailing Portland neighborhoods from Kenton to Multnomah Village and the Pearl District to Montavilla, this volume delineates the character and features of each area as well as the types and availability of housing, plus a list of convenient addresses and web sites. It then goes further afield to describe suburbs in East Multnomah County, Clackamas, Washington, and even Yamhill counties, plus Vancouver and its suburbs in Washington state.And best of all, this volume approaches Portland with a sensibility appropriate to the city with humor and a bit of delight in the quirkiness that exemplifies the Rose City.
