Amazing job with this. I just wanted to let you know that because of these posts I have a newly discovered love of Hamilton and am SERIOUSLY thinking about moving there.

I have a young family and am really looking for a neighbourhood that is kid friendly yet close to downtown, has excellent schools, parks, and community centres. Any suggestions. I really like the looks of westdale.

Any chance you would do a photo montage about city life. ie. inside the library, farmers market, community centres, festivals even bar scene (I think you have done a little but I would to see some more).

Thanks so much. You really are doing a service to your city here.

Mike

once Toronto's real estate becomes prohibitively expensive Hamilton is undoubtedly going to become the urban place to be. no other city in Ontario outside of Toronto has these great urban neighbourhoods. just make sure they don't tear too many of these down.

Old houses built really close together, rowhomes and semi-detached dominate a large area of lower Hamilton, most of it is brick.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed the photos!

Westdale is nice, it's right beside McMaster so has a lot of students. I like many areas in Hamilton, if the street looks nice it probably is. Other streets look bad, and some actually are be bad. The areas directly west of downtown Hamilton, Westdale, the west end and Dundas are great areas for families. There are some really nice areas in the east too, St. Clair and some of the areas around Gage Park are really nice. My career took me to Ottawa recently, but I would like to return to Hamilton and those are the places I would look.

Even though I'm now living in Ottawa, I still have some Hamilton stuff I haven't posted yet (but will eventually!)
