West Hills of Portland
Someone once made the remark that Portland’s West Hills was Boston’s Beacon Hill without the dress code. The dress code in Portland is a bit relaxed as Gore-Tex is more common than cashmere. One similarity between Boston and the West Hills of Portland is both share narrow streets.
Perhaps you have heard the Everclear musical group’s song with the line, “I will buy you that big house, way up in the West Hills.” Everclear is from Portland, and they are referring to Portland’s West Hills where Everclear’s founder Art Alexakis lived in the late 90s.
