Montreal Geography Trivia No. 44

The intersection of Maisonneuve and St. Rose no longer exists.

What will you find there now?

UPDATE: Jean Naimard nails it below. You’ll find the Parc de Champlain, which sits at the corner of Ste. Rose and Alexandre-Desève. Maisonneuve Street was renamed Alexandre-Desève with the creation of the similarly-named De Maisonneuve Boulevard.

    Since the Green Line runs underneath de Maisonneuve for a good chunk of its length, I’m going to say a Metro station…no idea which one, though.

    …this presupposes, of course, that you are referring to Blvd. de Maisonneuve, and that there isn’t some other Maisonneuve out there.

    You will find the parc de Champlain, not because Ste-Rose no longer exists, but because Maisonneuve street has been renamed “rue Alexandre Desève” when the De Montigny/Western/Burnside/whatever streets were concatenated into the boulevard Maisonneuve.
    (Information on this here — you will have to dig, it’s one of those wonky websites that won’t let you link to a specific view).

    At present, a St Rose runs parallel to de Maisonneuve, about 3 blocks south of it: north of Rene-Levesque between about Papineau and Panet.

    This is intriguing, as I remember tiny rue Ste-Rose running parallel to de Maisonneuve, farther south. I checked on the online map; it is one of those unfortunate streets that were truncated and almost disappeared. Seems north of the Radio-Canada mess.

    I used to work thereabouts and explored the tiny but discombobulated streets and alleys.

    Are there any other parts of that map online? Is there a general URL for it?

    Oh, heck, here is an annotated map of the area, with Maisonneuve in yellow and Ste-Rose in red: http://imgur.com/PbZhc.gif
