      "Goose Hollow is a neighborhood partly in, and adjacent to, downtown Portland, Oregon. This neighborhood, or association of neighborhoods, is host to several distinct, but related, residential communities. While the neighborhood has now less than half the housing stock it had thirty years ago, it remains one of the most densely populated parts of the City. Its attractiveness as a place to live has much to do with this association's insistence on maintaining a pedestrian environment and rebuilding a community
      focus lost in a period of dislocation and changing patterns of urbanization accompanying the development of urban freeways."
