  Place Jacques-Cartier
by Blatherwick

Place Jacques-Cartier is the central street of Montreal's Vieux Port (Old Port). The broad, divided street slopes steeply downhill from the City Hall and Rue Notre-Dame to the waterfront and Rue de la Commune. During the high tourist season, the street hosts many buskers and the place is packed. During the Christmas season, the street is lined with lighted trees. At any time of year, one can can find restaurants on both sides of the street and many more on the surrounding streets of Vieux Port, notably on Rue Saint-Paul.
