Griffintown is also a very old neighbourhood which has become a very "in" place to live. It has been renovated and is still undergoing changes. I use to live in that area, filled with Antique Dealers, restaurants with terraces, coffee shops and very nice people. Enjoy this neighbourhood very much and although I don't live in the area anymore, I still like to walk around. There are many restrictions in the building code in order to maintain the quaint look of the area.
