Spotlight on Portland’s Sunnyside Neighborhood

Sunnyside might be best known for its trendy bars and boutique shopping, but there’s a lot more to this Southeast Portland neighborhood than Belmont and Hawthorne.

The neighborhood’s motto — “proud past, bright future” — is reflected in traditions like the Hard Times Supper, which volunteers serve at Sunnyside Community House every Wednesday night, as well as an annual community gathering to repaint the sunflower street mural in Sunnyside Piazza.

This artsy neighborhood also has one of the biggest wall murals in Portland, and its street art scene is only getting better.
