The Alphabet District and the Multnomah Medical Examiner

It was hard to come up with something for this new Grimm episode "El Cucay". I do know parts were filmed in NW Portland, also known as the Alphabet District.

Portland PD Grimm 8-29-13

This is a good indication there will be some kind of police action filmed.

NW Portland 3

For a couple days back in August Grimm's crews took over the area near Thurman and 25th Ave. Wondering what is at the other end of this?

NW Portland 4

Really big lights.

NW Portland 1

A bit of the action centered around the Thurman Mart. Which was renamed and decorated with graffiti just for the show. The neighborhood here is actually pretty nice.

NW Portland 2

I know this is boring so I thought I would add something that is not too far from this location. Something that isn't what it appears to be.

NW Portland 5

A building with rather permanent looking signage for the Multnomah County Medical Examiner. Except it isn't.

NW Portland 6

Actually the Multnomah County Medical Examiner is down on SW 190th Ave. in Portland. This building is the one used for the outside of Grimm's version. Unlike the police stickers that have been removed now from the Customs House, this building still graces it's Grimm marker. Previously this was the American Can Building where tin cans were made. The exterior makes occasional appearances during the show.

Livin' on the River

Actually it's the Multnomah Channel which flows along Sauvie Island.

To get there from Portland you drive US. Route 30 heading towards Sauvie Island Bridge.

Once past the Portland Industrial District (which has a couple cool places to check out and a very interesting history) and a little north you will find people who decided to live on the water. With all the rivers in Oregon it's not surprising there are houseboats in many places. However this area has a very nice view of Sauvie Island.

I would have more photos but it's not easy taking photos of these from land. Would have been a nice day for a sail if I had a boat.

So that is why this Grimm locations post is rather short. Sorry no photos of the specific houseboat from tonight's episode. But then it's safer not to bother the naiads there.

It wasn't Grimm in the Gorge today

In fact it was a pretty nice day to be there even though it was cloudy.

Multnomah Falls 11-8-13

I have a rare visitor for the last couple of weeks so that is a priority over posting. Next week I hope to have something a little more than just a photo of the Multnomah Falls. Which was the setting for the end of "Lonely Hearts", episode 4 of the first season of Grimm.

If you would like to see a larger version of the photo just click on it and it will take you to the photo on Flickr.
