Stop 25

Stop 25: Grand & Broadway

Our train takes a wide turn here and heads west on Broadway.




This area seems like it could use a little urban renewal. It will be interesting to see what impact, if any, the Streetcar has had on the neighborhood in 5 years or so.

Exploring around the neighborhood we have Walgreens, 1620 Grand, Vics Hobby Supply, Uhaul, 425 NE Broadway, Broadway Auto Body, providing collision repair for about 30 years, Transmission Exchange 1803 MLK, a supplier of Transmissions and parts for automotive truck and industrial applications, both domestic and import.

Also in the neighborhood is Albina Community Bank, a locally-owned and operated neighborhood bank, Dr Jason Luoma, 1830 NE Grand, is a Licensed Psychologist in Oregon, and conducts psychotherapy for people who are struggling with the difficulties and Pilogarobic 1804 MLK, is a one hour workout combining pilates, yoga, cardio, and strength training.

Vintage Portland says this 1958 image showing NE Broadway looking west from 15th Avenue, was shot two years before Lloyd Center opened nearby.
