Seen from the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade, downtown Portland looks splendid at dawn.

Reality check: As OPB pointed out, just in March, two people died after being assaulted on the esplanade, in what the police said were unrelated attacks.

  • Another man, a 73-year-old who was fishing, had his arm broken by a random assailant with a large stick.

Yesterday, however, it was peaceful, with a jogger and a cyclist passing periodically.
