Exploring Montreal's endangered heritage sites

Heritage Montreal has identified many heritage buildings and sites in Montreal that are endangered.

Since the bicycle is a great way to explore Montreal, we suggest you might find this to be an interesting theme to explore our city by visiting some of these sites, before they are gone under the bulldozer of urban redevelopment.

In other news, Saturday's Gazette featured urban expert and McGill professor Avi Friedman's selection of some of the best architectural jewels (buildings, streets, neighbourhoods) that would also be interesting destinations for a Montreal urban bike ride. The article is called "A tour of authentic Montreal" and it follows this post's theme of finding and treasuring the jewels of Montreal's urban landscape. (This article is highly recommended.)

Read the Gazette article here. The online version even has a google map, nice job.
