STREET PROFILE: AMHERST

Our Montreal Street Profile series has already visited Bleury, Parc, Maisonneuve, Saint-Paul and Saint-Zotique. Other bloggers have investigated Crescent, Greene Avenue, Sainte-Catherine, Saint-Denis and Mont-Royal. For my kick at the street can, I decided to take a stroll along Rue Amherst…

When celebrities come to Montreal, they’re just like normal tourists. Take Jake Gyllenhaal for example.
