You may have a point there Mr Jason. I always wondered if things would have been different if I'd moved downtown (I liked the look of the Corktown neighbourhood in particular).

For what it's worth - my main beef with the downtown wasn't the slow resurgence of the core - as you have frequently pointed out, there are many many hidden gems to find downtown. It's the buffetting of those Vic Park houses by Main at one end and York Boulevard at the other. The first house we looked at was just east of Vic Park (Napier St I think). Beautiful house, nice streets but man - The freeways at either end were not a selling point! In fact we found the roads were a major distraction for many of the neighbourhoods we looked at (we also fell in love with Inchbury Street, next to Dundurn 'Castle' but again - York Boulevard scared us away)

If Hamilton could turn their downtown freeways into nice residential streets it would be a much more pleasant place to live (and I might still be there - a-ha!)
