Discovering Little Burgundy: Untapped Outtakes

I just published a new article about one of Montreal’s most interesting neighborhoods: Little Burgundy on Untapped Cities. Read it here.

Little Burgundy has a rich past, playing an important part in Montreal’s renowned jazz scene. After years of desolation, the area has been going through quite the revival in the last few years.

I thought I’d share some more pictures of the neighborhood that I didn’t put in with the article.
