Alberta Street Business Association

Alberta Street Business Association exists to promote the general welfare of the businesses and property owners of the NE Alberta Street commercial corridor between NE MLK Blvd to NE 33rd Ave.  A business hub since 1903, Alberta Street has seen many changes.  Originally home to German and Irish immigrants, the district’s African American population increased dramatically in the 1950s after the Vanport flood.
