Saint-Henri is historically French-Canadian and Irish, with Canadian black - all working class. It's history goes back to the mid 1600's. This bustling neighbourhood is a great walk, and you will witness the working class atmosphere colliding with today's gentrification. Saint-Henri is bordered to the north by the Ville Marie Expressway (autoroute 720), to the south by the Lachine canal, to the east by Atwater Avenue and to the west by autoroute 15.
