Saint-Laurent Street became a boulevard in 1905 and is affectionately referred to as The Main by many Montrealers. It serves as the city’s physical division of east and west. Street numbers begin at Saint-Laurent and continue outward, with street names being suffixed by Ouest (West) or Est (East), depending on their orientation.

Saint-Laurent Street divides Montreal by language, ethnicity, and class. Saint-Laurent Street was for generations the symbolic dividing line for the city, with the predominantly English-speaking population to the west, French-speaking population to the east, and immigrant communities in between along the Main and Park Avenue. The Main runs through many of Montreal’s ethnic communities, a first stop for immigrant communities for over 100 years — initially Jewish, Chinese and Italian, and later Portuguese, Greek, Arab, Haitian and others. Old Montreal (French: Vieux-Montréal) is the oldest area in the city of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, dating back to New France.

Old Montreal is located in the borough of Ville-Marie, the area is usually thought of as being bounded to the west by McGill St., to the north by Ruelle des Fortifications, to the east by Saint Hubert St., and to the south by the Saint Lawrence River. Following recent amendments, the district has been expanded slightly to include the rue des Soeurs Grises to the west, Saint Antoine St. to the north and the Saint Hubert Street in the east. It also includes the Old Port of Montreal. Most of Old Montreal was declared an historic district in 1964 by the Ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec. These are just a few of the popular tourist destinations in Montreal where visitors come to enjoy the wonderful day and night life that this great city has to offer.
