Older 'hoods

This is what I meant about the aesthetic of having living space above commerce and how mature tree-lined residential side streets compliment feeding into a vibrant artery (currently pedestrian only) thus breathing life into the neighborhood. These buildings date from the early 20th century and are attached but are not more than 3 stories high with independent staircases which encourage privacy. Hence, aside from being attached no common areas shared between occupants other than perhaps green space in the rear of the building.

This artery also has subway entrances which make getting here a breeze via public transit.


  1. Ok, granted I already live in a pretty vibrant hood but this sounds like exactly where I'd want to live by choice. Where is it?

    1. It's called Verdun in the south west region of Montreal island :)
