I love the cross atop the mountain looking down on all the strip clubs.

Someday you might have the money, but too little time to see them.

It's always one or the other, isn't it? Sigh.

Great stuff. I like the night shots in particular.

This is the best Montreal thread I've seen. I get a real sense of what that fascinating city is like. Thanks.

I love Montreal and that sir, was an amazing thread. And although I don't like living in snow it sure can be pretty:

Great pictures! I liked the ones of the great stone rowhouses the most (and the one with the mountain at night with the cross on it).

I hope that you get a chance to do more neighborhood tours of Montreal. I like these types of threads as well, but you do a good job of showing what an area is like. Your Hamilton threads helped me understand your old hometown.

This is a fairly small slice of Montreal. Every one of these pics are from about a 15 block stretch of Downtown Montreal centered on St. Catherine. The only reason we took the Metro was because my daughter gets a kick out of riding the subway (I have to admit I like it too!)
