A homey hideout in the city’s north end, Killingsworth Street strings together one of Portland’s most diverse neighborhoods, where a cluster of family-owned markets and restaurants double as community hubs for many black, Latino and Asian American residents. Hop off the Yellow Line MAX train to find food carts, a queer-centric bar that hosts DJ parties and a hippie record store that turns into a rock dive after dark.
