Inaugurated on the first anniversary of Leonard Cohen's death, this 20 storey tall mural is part of the city's memorial to the singer and writer. It truly captures the essence and modesty of a great man.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and

headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
