Sunnyside is a neighborhood in the south east section of Portland, between SE Stark St. and SE Hawthorne Blvd. (north to south) and from SE 28th Ave. to SE 49th Ave. (west to east). Sunnyside is sometimes referred to as the Belmont neighborhood, for its main commercial street, although technically the unofficial geographical area known colloquially as Belmont borders both Sunnyside and Richmond neighborhoods.
Sunnyside is bordered by Laurelhurst to the north, Richmond to the south, Buckman to the west, and Mount Tabor to the east. Because of its Victorian architecture andbohemian culture, Hawthorne/Belmont is often compared to San Francisco‘s Haight Ashbury district.
Peacock Lane, running north and south between Stark and Belmont, is a street known locally for lavish Christmas decorations and displays
