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.


  1. It's a great idea. I'm glad they're doing it again this year.

    Nice blog, btw. :)

  2. Thanks, Jeff.
    Now if it would only stop raining and pretending that we're still in April; I could go out and enjoy it.

    It's a great idea that more cities should do.
