Gibson/Landsdale

Thanks everyone. Well, we made it to the second page and I promised a blue collar neighbourhood, so we'll go for a walk in the Gibson/Landsdale area in central Hamilton. These gritty neighbourhoods are a stark contrast to the splendour of Durand, and are what Hamilton is known for. Many people assume neighbourhoods that look like this are dangerous, but that is not the case here. I love walking through these neighbourhoods, they are very urban and have tons of character. If grit is not your thing, stay tuned because I have plenty more beautiful neighbourhoods coming up.

Nice pictures. This neighborhood has too much orange, brown, and olive green for my taste to live in.

You forgot the map!

Is there anything of interest in the Skyway or Skybridge (whatever it's called) area? Or is it all land used for storage and wasteland in general?

Skyway Bridge. Yes, that's where the Hamilton Beach Community is located, it has been undergoing a redevelopment over the last few years. I don't think flar has covered the area yet.

Doing a fabulous job flar!

xzmattxz: under the skyway there is an old steel lift bridge and lighthouse, as well as the beach community SteelTown mentioned. Further along the lake side in Hamilton there is a beach and Centennial Park. On the north shore is downtown Burlington, which has a nice waterfront. The Hamilton Harbour side is all industrial.

I dug up a few pictures from the beach in Hamilton (the pics were taken in October so not many swimmers!)

A couple of panoramas from the mountain brow in Hamilton. You can see Toronto's skyline (about 60km away) in the background.

Nice pictures of the beach area.

I like that you are posting random pictures on occasion. It keeps the thread alive in between neighborhood tours.

Before we get to another neighbourhood tour, here are a few shots of Hamilton's lower city from the mountain brow:
