Portland, like many other hip cities in the USA and elsewhere, still has a reputation for being full of young artists — musicians and muralists and all sorts of others.
Reputations usually lag behind reality, and that is very much the case in Portland. The fact is, most of the artists already left, sometime after the rents doubled, sometime before they tripled.
The rest of us will leave soon if we don’t get a very strict form of rent control in place very soon.
