Detailed description (South-west of Montreal)
The south-west section is a large district that is mostly residential with industrial areas. It includes the districts and neighbourhoods of St-Henri, Little Burgundy, Griffintown (this district doesn't exist anymore), Pointe-St-Charles, Verdun, etc. They were the old industrial districts of Montreal (along with the centre-sud district and the Lachine canal). Eventhough these district have known better days, there still a lot to do and see there. The Lachine canal, the Atwater market and Notre-Dame street west are good examples.
