The Plateau was the landing area for generations of immigrants, first Jewish and then Portuguese, and it retains strong traces of both eras. The western part is full of English-speaking students, while the eastern edge trends young and Francophone. Plateau-dwellers have always lived in very close quarters, but the residential streets stay peaceful. It’s the best place to soak in Montreal’s carefree pace of life.
