Downtown (PDF map), unlike many American downtowns in cities of similar size, does not go to sleep at five PM each day, but boasts world-class entertainment, dining and housing. If you’re looking for an exciting, vibrant neighborhood with the ultimate convenience of being within short walking distance of thousands of workplaces, Downtown is the place for you. Despite its unparalleled amenities, Downtown has many great values on condominiums and lofts, many close to the lovely South Park Blocks, which bisect the neighborhood with a swath of tasteful, urban nature.
For the second year in a row, Multnomah County Library is ranked number two in Hennen's American Public Library Ratings (HAPLR), which rates U.S. public libraries serving populations over 500,000.
Downtown is served by the Central branch ( 801 SW 10th Ave.) of the Multnomah County Library.
