Richmond is another SE Portland neighborhood in the Clinton Division district (see Hosford-Abernethy post). This neighborhood exists between SE 29th and SE 50th from left to right and Hawthorne and Powell Boulevards from top to bottom. Richmond may also be referred to Hawthorne District due to its boundary line on the eclectic, hip stretch of Hawthorne Blvd. Richmond remains one of my favorite places in SE Portland. The more recent urban renewal on Division offering window shopping at boutiques and highly curated resale shops & upscale eateries married with the grittier cash checking, strip joint vibe of Powell creates an atmosphere that’s well… funky and pretty great in this girl’s opinion.
