This neighborhood is officially known as Milton-Parc, but everybody calls it the McGill Ghetto. It is densely populated by McGill University students and therefore, is a very lively street, with good coffee shops, restaurants and a nice second hand bookstore called The Word. I had a good half an hour to spare, so I went into the bookstore and perused around the art shelf. I was most pleased to discover Leonardo Drawings: 60 Works by Leonardo da Vinci, which I bought in anticipation of a visit to the Leonardo exhibition in downtown Montreal.
