I probably should have done a post about Portlandia sooner but, like many people, I forget that she exists. Nestled above Southwest 5th Avenue, the statue is the second largest of its kind in the U.S. (after the Statue of Liberty). Portlandia is located about five stories above a tree-lined, transit-only street and is therefore easy to miss. I realize that Raymond Kaskey designed the statue based on this location, but I always wished it was at the waterfront. Still, it’s beautiful and worth checking out- just look up!
