I guess I was expecting a bit more but wasn't highly impressed. It's just a giant statue on a really ugly building and it's kinda hard to see it.

This statue is big but the main attraction is the area around it. Portland downtown is easy to walk and explore. There are lots of buses and streetcars. Restaurants and Delis at every corner and something to explore all along all the streets.

Little known fact you can go up the escalator across the street and get a better view. Not too bad for a statue!

I worked in the Portlandia building and was amazed by this statue. There is a smaller bronze portlandia sculpture on the front of the building to.

so, you gotta see it. many of us pass by here every day; but if you have out of town guests take the time to go by and get a picture. don't forget, this is not a street level statue; you must look up! and if you go off hours and you're in a car, you can double park, take... More

Second largest statue in the US, next to the Statue of Liberty. I've lived in the Portland area most of my life and I just saw this for the first time. Very cool

Not sure why people get so gaga over this statue. In my opinion it is ugly and should be removed and replaced with a statue that is worthy.

You have to see Portlandia and read a little about her AND amaze at how stupid the City officials were to put her above the leaking, expensive-to-maintain city building where no one can see her when there are leaves on the trees. Winter is the best time to get a good look at here.
