Top Reasons To Live in NDG
Properties with character and streets lined with mature trees: NDG is a tree-lined community that sits just west of the downtown core. It has been dubbed a residential suburb but the truth is, it actually sits between sub and urb. With a family-friendly vibe, you are sure to find lots of great outdoor spaces, parks and playgrounds as well a handful of amazing elementary and high schools. On the other hand, the bustling Monkland Village makes for a great afternoon of shopping, feasting and popping into your local pub for a pint.
Amazing restaurants and cafés
Nothing’s better than knowing a great coffee shop, pub or restaurant is just steps away from your front door. Luckily, NDG is home to the original Ye Olde Orchard Pub location, the birthplace of one of Montreal’s most beloved restaurants Taverne and of course boasts the iconic greasy spoon dinner Cosmo’s. You can’t go wrong strolling down Sherbrooke street and stopping in supermarket Akhavan or picking up fresh pasta and pizza dough at Pasta Casareccia.
Strong sense of community
Students, families and long-time residents all call NDG home: If supportive neighbors and strong community is what you’re looking for, NDG is the borough for you. Although NDG might be quite a large borough, the community is close-knit. You can feel the sense of pride in the community through any of the local events such as the annual the Monkland Street Festival.
NDG is like the Plateau, with parking.
PARKING. Need I say more? Amongst the tree lined streets and rows of homes, semi-attached and detached lie driveways. Yes, you read that correctly, NDG is a vibrant, trendy neighborhood like the plateau but with enough space to have your very own parking.

Whether you hop on the metro at Villa Maria or the bustling hub at Vendôme you can be sure to get out downtown in just a few stops. So leave the car at home … in that nice driveway you’ve got yourself.
Lots to keep you busy: sports centre, cultural centre and parks.
Community centres, parks, pools, tennis courts, the list goes on and on. There are no shortages of activities and communal outdoor spaces that can be found in NDG. Whether you’re looking to take the kids to an outdoor rink, join a members-only tennis club or simply trying to get your Namaste on, this neighborhood has got the place for you.
The great debate – Chalet BBQ vs Cote-St-Luc BBQ.
Are you partial to your chicken? Do you have an allegiance to Chalet BBQ vs Cote-St-Luc BBQ? Lucky for you, living in NDG means you’ll have easy access to both and therefore can host your own, ‘who does it better’ feast. As if you need an excuse to pick up from both.
