Though predominantly French-speaking, this district of over 100,00 residents boasts a large multi-ethnic population. Once fairly run down, it is now one of the most desired addresses in Canada, thanks to a vibrant commerce, plenty of green spaces (including Lafontaine Park and Mount Royal), bike paths, art galleries, restaurants and a community spirit that spills out naturally into the streets. Though its cheap-and-funky days are behind it, for many people this is still the quintessential Montreal neighborhood.
