north portland and north east portland needs money... the school systems in those areas are a joke because of funding.. middle school and high school all in one school because they couldnt afford to keep them opened.... section 8 is still available if you need help with rent.. lots of hipster neighborhoods started popping up that were in hood areas but the rent was still low... whats wrong with having a city with no "hood"
Try to rent an apartment in Brooklyn now, or several other places around the nation that have undergone gentrification. Hood areas where rent is low, do not stay low-that's the point. I am not speaking to Portland specifically, because honestly I've never been.I can say this same story applies to several urban areas in North America. It doesn't stimulate the economy for current residents, it only displaces them.
