  1. Hi –

    It’s pretty much within the rectangle bounded by St-Catherine’s to the South, Boul. de Maisonneuve/President Kennedy to the North, Bleury to the East and Union to the West. City Councillors, Mayor, St-Alexandre, Cathcart, Union, Aylmer and Place Phillips are all neat little streets worth exploring, albeit during the day, at night the area is a tad sketchy. It’s bizarre because the area is starting to repopulate, after a prolonged period where all housing was destroyed and people were moved out. Very much a neighbourhood without an identity or solid community infrastructure, but also exceptionally desirable for a diverse range of people. I hope the city has a plan to better populate this area, if for no other reason than to ensure a greater degree of safety and security in the downtown. Thanks for the compliment!
