Montreal in world’s top 10 Waterfront Cities !
The famous website Travel & Leisure posted recently a ranking made by a nonprofit group that promotes community-friendly places, The Project for Public Spaces (PPS). The result: a list of destinations where the waterfront has become (or has always been) a vital place for city residents and tourists to shop, work, and gather. Montreal appears in this ranking between cities like Vanice, San Sebastian or Helsinki…
Here what they said on Montreal :
« When Montreal’s new port facilities opened in the 1970s, an exodus of residents left the old port dark and dangerous. Today, the old city has been reinvented as a design destination and has taken its place as the true heart of Montreal. Tourists beeline to the port, eager to explore the oldest urban area in North America (and eat French food), while locals bike, boat, ice-skate along the port and its canals, and browse the 160-year-old Bonsecours Market. »
