'''Portland, OR''' (not to be confused with Portland, ME) is Oregon's largest city and a major city of TheOtherRainforest. Portland is known for being almost as rainy as UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} but twice as bizarre. Portland's nicknames include the [[FlowerMotifs City of Roses]], Stumptown, Portlandia, PDX, Rip City[[note]](mostly associated with the city's [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation NBA]] team, the Trail Blazers) [[/note]] and "the place where young people go to retire". The residents are often stereotyped as {{hipster}}s, {{Granola Girl}}s, or {{New Age Retro Hippie}}s. It is, however, not ''quite'' as bizarre as ''Series/{{Portlandia}}'' would have you believe. Portlanders are serious about their beer, bicycles, books (Powell's Books is the largest used book store in the world), and food carts.

* ''TheHunted''. The film features an action scene where Benicio Del Toro's character is pursued through Downtown Portland (notable for a sequence involving a MAX train on the Hawthorne Bridge--in spite of the fact that the MAX doesn't go on the Hawthorne Bridge).
* ''MrBrooks'': A successful Portland businessman turns out to be a serial killer.
* ''{{Film/Untraceable}}''. The climax prominently features Portland's Broadway Bridge, which made some local headlines when the film was first released.
* The first ''{{Literature/Twilight}}'' movie was largely filmed in and around Portland, [[CaliforniaDoubling although it takes place in Forks, Washington]]. For the second movie onwards, production was moved to [[StargateCity Vancouver, British Columbia]].

Portland is divided into five quadrants: North, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest. North and South are divided by Burnside Street (and addresses along Burnside are merely given the designation of "East" or "West"), while East and West are divided by the Willamette River. North Portland, finally, is basically a peninsula that juts off from Northeast Portland going into the Willamette. Downtown Portland is made up of central Southwest and Northwest Portland, while the "cool" hipstery areas are largely found in Southeast and Northeast (and are where a lot of the neighborhoods accused of having gentrified are located). There is an unofficial sixth quadrant occasionally referred to as "East Portland" or "East County" that starts roughly at 82nd Avenue and runs Eastward until it runs into Gresham, which has a reputation of being significantly poorer and less white than the rest of the city, with a heavy Asian and Slavic influence. African-American Portlanders have traditionally been concentrated in North Portland (it used to be that they were "redlined" out of living in any other part of the city) although gentrification has pushed more and more black Portlanders Eastwards.
