My appartement is in Montreal East (Hochelaga-Maisonneuve). There's many coffee shops, restaurants, bars and cinema near by. There's three grocery shops (Metro,Super C and IGA) and many fruit markets. I'm at exactly 10 minutes from the metro station Préfontaine and Joliette by walk or you can take the bus 125 Est at metro station Frontenac it take 3 minutes max. There's a a nice park and a free public pool on my street. 30 minutes from downtown and the old port.
Pleasure to welcome you
