Vacant store fronts, drug addicts waiting outside the pharmacy to buy pills, aggressive panhandlers, police everywhere, and packs of scooter wheelchairs. There is nothing enjoyable about this road. The panhandlers will Chase. You. Down.

Short on time? Head to Mile End and visit an array of boutiques and restaurants fresher and more lively than this somewhat tired street. Worth a stroll but don't expect too much.

This is a photo of the Place Jacques-Cartier in old Montréal. It has nothing to with Ste-Catherine street. This SteCath. Street was at one time full of neon cinema and Night-clubs signs. To day it is busy downtown streets but you have to imagine that...More

Still a good place to walk through, although the area itself is not what it used to be. You can either take a bus ride or drive your car down, there are parking meters pretty well everywhere. If you don't mind the occasional person begging...More

Remove the random smells usually urine based and the drunks asking for beer money and you have a vibrant end of town. Have a stroll down. Perhaps I caught it on a full moon.

Visit during the 375 yr celebration and weekend of the 50th anniversary of the Grand Prix so many side streets were blocked for cars, but walking was great, parking was easy-just feed the meter kiosk every 2 hours because that is the max. But any...More

This street has progressively gone down hill as the best shopping choices have moved underground in the concourses under the Eatons Centre, the Bassilica, or the Hudson Bay.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

I am not sure but I would guess at least until midnight. Find a restaurant you would be interested and look them up online or call them. We were there until 10.30pm and the street was bussing. Hope this helps.

Yes that is correct, Just go to Basilica of Notre Dame and they are located on the North East corner of the square in front of the basilica.

Almost always, there are a bunch of carriages lined up right at the square across from the big church in Old Montreal, Notre Dame.
