MANHATTAN: A Walking Tour
Artist Khris Soden leads a one-and-a-half mile walking through Portland’s St. Johns neighborhood, a place once advertised as becoming the “Manhattan of the West”. The tour reveals the neighborhood’s connections with the New York Borough and explores the ambitions, successes, failures and follies that are part of the process of city-building and life in general.
