It feels like a Chinatown on life support. It doesn't look like there is a critical mass to call that area a Chinatown, it's just a typical western city with a few Chinese themed objects here and there.

There is so much to do in the Pearl District of downtown Portland from great places to eat and shops to see. Then you also have quick access to the river. There are many great places to shop in close proximity to the Chinatown gate...More
