DAMN. And it's actually useful! A useful Flash app? That's not right.

Every town needs one of those. Incredibly impressive.

Truly fun... why haven't I made it to Montreal in so long? Just yesterday, when the public spaces list was posted, I tried & failed to find a decent presentation of Montreal's neighborhoods. Be sure to use the search feature — for example, "bagel" returns six sites to explore.

There goes my day/week. Great site.

Dobbs, that tool is spectacular. Not only a great idea, but the choice of restaurants/parks/record stores/quirky things that make Montreal unique is bang on the money - perfectly to my taste.

I've wanted to build something like that for ages, though I knew I never really would. Now someone else has done it for me.

And it reminds me to tell you all: if you're ever in Montreal, and you have even the slightest inclination towards ice cream, Bilboquet is a must. Search it out on this site!

Montreal photos: Christopher DeWolf's urbanphoto has lots of neighbourhood photos of the city, including the Plateau.

If you love food, there are few places in North America that have restaurants as amazing as Montreal. Seafood lovers should check out Le Poisson Rouge, one block north of Lafontaine Park. Very romantic, to boot.

I second Le Poisson Rouge. But if you really love food, there's no better restaurant to visit than Pied De Cochon. Get the Foie Gras Poutine.

This site is amazing. I didn't think it would teach me anything about Montreal that I didn't already know, but there's a ton of info in here. That old mansion above McGill where they used to conduct mind control experiments is called Ravenscrag? How fabulously ominous!

They even include my favorite bar in the world - Elsie's. I'm getting homesick for the days I used to live in Montreal. Boston just can't compare - not by a long shot.
