The "Village" goes car-free for the summer
from Spacing Montreal by Alanah Heffez
For the second year, Ste-Catherine street is pedestrianized between Berri and Papineau. As if the village weren’t colourful enough, these yellow banners are aflap at every street corner. Terraces abound, and since they are in place for the entire summer there are all kinds of creative semi-permanent installations.
The street is closed to traffic now until September 8th.
