Portland's Many Bridges

Portland is famous for its bridges. In fact, during the Great Recession a sizable number of Portlandians can be found living under many of them.[1]

Bridge City boasts so many spans across its two mighty rivers that "Bridgetown" is one of the city's most popular nicknames. (Other common Portland aliases include Rose City, Puddletown, PDX, Stumptown and others.)
