Almost four years after my last review, I still love the archictecture, especially a few Art Deco and Romanesque Revival buildings. There are lots of good restaurants and cafes, shops, monuments, museums and art galleries, etc. There are certain parts that I wouldn't go to alone at night, and during the day I'm aware of my surroundings, I'll put it that way.

Oltre al Commercial Street posso affermare che questa è l’ultima via da poter visitare a piedi per bene a Portland. La statua caratteristica è molto graziosa.

Walked around for about an hour before dining at David’s. Lots of homeless people. No great stores to pop into. Did not go into museum due to timing and Covid.

There are many beautiful buildings around Arts District. There are statues, shops, museums and restaurants in the vicinity. Nice to stroll around prior to return to the cruise pier nearby.

I don't find the Arts District very welcoming. There's some beautiful historic architecture, pocket parks, good restaurants, shops and galleries, and of course the Portland Art Museum, but there are a lot of sketchy characters, some graffiti and litter. There's also a lot of police presence, so I suppose it's relatively safe, just not a proverbial 'stroll in the park'.

The Portland Art Museum anchors the Art District and is well worth a visit. The collection is diverse and well-curated. A visit will take 1-2 hours. The private galleries are a bit scattered and highly variable but, with diligence, you can find a number of fine works with a local flavor. Maine Craft, while not featuring fine arts, has tremendous examples of local crafts and woodworking. Portland is a worthy stop and with some effort can provide some good art experiences.

Most of the Arts District has a laid-back hipster ambiance. At its eastern end is the modernistic Portland Public Library (1979) and Monument Square with its bronze statue of Our Lady of Victories (1890) on a granite pedestal. At its western end is Longfellow Square with its bronze statue of the poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1887), on a granite base. At its southern end, at York Street, is a bronze statue of the film director, John Ford (1998), on another granite pedestal. In its heart are the widely acclaimed Portland Museum of Art (1983) and the 487-student campus of the Maine College of Art (1882). In addition, the district has a fine arts school, an African tribal art museum, and a multimedia institute. It also has at least two dance studios, four theatre venues, ten music venues, and many art galleries. Amidst the visual and performing arts scene, the Arts District has four bars, four cafés, 15 restaurants, and several specialty shops, most of which are within just a few blocks of the Portland Museum of Art.

Arts District parking is easy to find, harder to use. The area’s six parking garages are at Spring Street ($28/day and $21/day), Free Street ($45/day), Cumberland Avenue ($35/day and $24/day), and High Street ($40/day). Some garages are public, others private; some are cash only, others credit only. Metered curbside parking is $1.50/hr with a strictly enforced two-hour limit. For proximity to museums and restaurants, the Spring Street and Free Street garages are best bets.

Area hotels are few. They include the historic, 15-floor, 289-room Westin Harborview Hotel (3 stars), and the business-centric, 11-floor, 239-room Holiday Inn by the Bay (3 stars). If I’d had the time, I’d have gone to the Westin’s Top of the East for its unique views of Portland’s cityscape and Casco Bay.

Among the district’s historic sites are the Asa Hanson Block (1889), the Hay Building (1826), the Lancaster Block (1881), the Maine Historical Society (1907), the McLellan House (1882), the Mechanic’s Hall (1859), and the Porteous Mitchell and Braun Building (1904). The Time and Temperature Building (1924) is also noteworthy. Of all these places, the Hay Building is one of Portland’s most widely renowned and readily recognized landmarks.

The Arts District’s only real park is 0.46-acre (0.18 ha) Congress Square Park; it has benches, tables, and a stage. Only 0.7 miles (1.1 km) away from Congress Square is the paved, 1.2-mile (1.9 km) Bayside Trail (walk/bike), which connects to the paved, 2.1-mile (3.4 km) Eastern Promenade Trail (walk/bike). The Arts District is easily walked. Its sidewalks can be uneven in places, particularly on side streets.

The cafés, the monuments, and the Portland Museum of Art were reason enough to walk the area on a mid-summer afternoon. If I were in the Arts District again, I’d expect to explore it more widely.

Very nice shops to explore in this area. You can find some interesting souvenirs or gifts. Lots of options as to types of stores.

'Arts District' of Portland Maine is more a promise than actual delivery. The section of Portland around the statue is used for demonstrations and gatherings, some art related. The public space does not feel warm or welcoming.

Lots of galleries, music shops, museums, and schools in this slightly run-down area of Portland. Be alert for pickpockets and panhandlers, more than we're encountered in years, so stay on guard. If you're there for the First Friday Art Walk — a self-guided tour that takes place on the first Friday of each month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m, then you're in for a treat. Be sure to stop in the galleries then and meet the locals. Plenty of local eateries, cafes, and coffee shops, as well as thrift stores which are fun to explore.
