Nice pictures! I always like seeing Quebec City on here.

Where is the Quebec YMCA located?

Thank you!

The YMCA was once located here in the Upper Town : https://www.google.com/maps/@46.8125...7i13312!8i6656
It will now move here in the Lower Town in a brand new building : https://www.google.com/maps/@46.8137...7i13312!8i6656

Interesting. I walked right next to the old YMCA a couple years ago, but didn't know it. But that was probably because it was shrouded in construction stuff.

Where did you take #46 from?

Yes, during the construction they have made a temporary pedestrian tunnel to protect peds from falling objects, so you probably did not see the building.

#46 was taken from up there : https://www.google.com/maps/@46.8088...7i13312!8i6656

An area that looks interesting to me, at least from looking at Google street view, is the Saint-Jean-Baptiste area. https://goo.gl/maps/m8RUzPoSjgrZnuN79 Dropped pin
Near Deligny, Québec, QC G1R 3A5, Canada

Yes indeed! This is the city's densest neighbourhood

Yes absolutely! Not very big mountains such as the Rockies, but still decently sized hills between 1000 and 4000ft. just off the city.

I love all the grey stone. It's a feature really unique to the cities of the Province of Quebec.

Really that much? I bet in most places you will rather see brown bricks?

Good idea! I think I've never made a thread in winter. Thanks for the suggestion!
