A few words on the area
“Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie is at the top of our hit parade of the most attractive boroughs in Montréal.”
“It is safe, public spaces are congenial and it has a nice ambience to raise one’s children.”

La Presse, cahier Mon Toit, September 19, 2009 edition.
What borough residents have to say
“This is our village.” (CIBL 101.5 Montréal)
“What I like in the neighbourhood is the beautiful rue Masson. Every day, I go there to buy bread and fruit.” (CIBL 101.5 Montréal)
“It is not yet a commercial street where one may come across snobbish people. It has a nice mix of newcomers and long-time residents. But, when you’re invited by long-time residents, don’t forget that it is their neighbourhood and not yet yours.” (Sébastien Diaz, http://ruemasson.com/?p=7382)
“To be truly lively, a commercial street must have an attraction for other neighbourhoods. There are now restaurants of this calibre. Something brand new.” (Jacques K. Primeau, http://ruemasson.com/?p=7611)
“I was so happy in the back lanes. We played hockey, kick-the-can, hide-and-seek, we had wild chases on our bikes. It was our oyster. It’s where we had our first kiss and our first fights.” (Normand D’Amour, http://ruemasson.com/?p=7742)
“I like going to Première Moisson. Hearing the employees call my son by his surname, that’s Rosemont.” (François Gadbois, http://ruemasson.com/?p=7979)
