St. Laurent Construction Watch - night edition

Posted by Hannah / May 8, 2007

20070508_ladder.jpgThis week the crew of St. Laurent Construction Watch stepped out for a night time visit of the street's clutter. We're happy to report that many of the machines between Prince Arthur and Pine Avenue were left out in the open, calling for passers by to climb in and take photos of themselves pretending to be surly construction workers. Midnight Poutine maintained its dignity and did not participate in these antics.

Although the worst of the construction has moved north, towards Rachel, the most glamourized section of St. Laurent remains pock-ridden, dripping and dusty. Random pipes, like the one outside of Le Pistol, have been sending a fine mist onto passers by for days, if not weeks, and others, heavily corroded, continue to drip into shallow puddles the colour of milky coffee.

As we continued past Pine, we noticed that the storefront that once housed S.W. Welch has turned a page on St. Laurent's history. Instead of a cat and dusty books, the windows hold mannequins draped in women's clothing. It looked like it might be the new incarnation of Oonu. (Do you know?) Would have crossed the street to look, but the doorway of Schwartz's beckoned (no lines.)
