Back because you demanded it!
There are many streets in Montreal that change names for no apparent reason. Drive straight and suddenly you’re on a new road. Perhaps you’ve crossed a municipal border, or are on part of a street that has been renamed in someone’s honour (or, in the case of Dorchester/René-Lévesque, both).
But this street is particularly bad.
Starting from one end:
- the street turns into a square
- the square turns into a type of street whose translation into English I had to look up because it’s so rare
- that “street” turns into a place
- the place turns into another place
- that place turns into a street
And you can walk the length of all six of these streets in under 30 minutes (according to Google Maps).
What are the names of these streets? And, for bonus points, at what intersections (or other boundaries) do they change names?
UPDATE: Plenty of you got this one right. The answer is:
- Rue McGill (McGill St.), from de la Commune St. W. to St. Jacques St. W.
- Square Victoria (actually Rue du Square Victoria, or Victoria Square St.) from St. Jacques St. W. to Viger Ave. W. (Viger St. W.? Stupid Google Maps)
- Côte du Beaver Hall (Beaver Hall Hill) from Viger to René-Lévesque Blvd. W.
- Place du Frère André from René-Lévesque Blvd. W. to about 10 feet down the road
- Place Phillips (Phillips Place) from that point to Ste. Catherine St. W. (and, of course, next to Phillips Square)
- Rue Aylmer (Aylmer St.) from Ste. Catherine St. W. to Pine Ave. W.
