    It's not significant, but Reed is 4.6 mi from downtown, L&C is 5.6 mi from downtown.

    Traffic, however, is horrible, so those 5 miles could take up to 25-30 minutes! @vonlost

    My impression is that Reedies gravitate towards the Hawthorne District, which is also in SE Portland, and therefore closer and easier to get to than downtown. Wikipedia describes it like this:
    The area has numerous retail stores, including clothing shops, restaurants, bars, brewpubs and microbreweries. Hawthorne district is known for its liberal residents. The district has been known for having various social groups, such as Generation X, hippies, and more recently, hipsters.
    According to Google maps, Hawthorne & Chavez (approximate center of district) is 18 minutes by bus or 19 minutes by bike from Reed.
