    BNP Tower & The Illuminated Crowd

    by alfredop Updated Aug 20, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This striking all glass office tower is perhaps best known for the light-hearted sculpture at its base on McGill College Avenue: Raymond Mason's 'The Illuminated Crowd.

    This is a creepy but nice sculpture and you can take great pictures. Light wil always be spread on the wealthy guys leading the crowd, but the always painful crowd will only get glimpses of light.

    It is one of downtown's most visited attractions for the art tourists.

    The building itself dates from 1983, when the broad avenue was remodelled in the spirit of Paris' Champs-Elysées.

    Off the Beaten Path.. Take for instance this St Joseph Cathedral. Form the looks of it you think you cannot conquer anything. This massive structure sits right on top Of the mountain, Pilgrims and church goers literally walk up the steps to visit and pray. Front of the entrace is a botanical garden about a yard in measurement, The steps you take about 125 steps.. Once you are on top, you know you can conquer anything.. and also the view is magnificent!

    Festival Italienne in Little Italy

    by Reverend Written Aug 20, 2004

    Came upon the final day of the Italienne Festival in Little Italy on Ste. Laurent. Lots of music, singing, food, making pasta by hand, guys playing soccer in a cage, Lambroghinis and Fiats, and people sitting outside the cafes along the sidewalks.

    I am an Australian living in in the Plateau and I think its awesome! There is so much to do - great bars, cafes, restaurants, cool shops...
    Just walk the streets or parks, go in-line skating, take bicycle ride to Mont Royal. The people are cool and sexy. So so vibrant....

    You must go in the 'Plateau Mont-Royal' area.
    Houses and architecture are very typpical with those stairs climbing up houses...

    Even though it's very cold in February, you must see the city all changed under the snow.
