Oh and honestly, if you're looking for a nice place, forget about the $700 rents! That's what we used to pay 15 years ago on the Plateau. My latest rent was $1200 per month in Ahuntsic and the equivalent would have been between $1500-$1600 on the Plateau for about 800 square feet, maybe a little more.

Rents have gone up tremendously in the past 15 years in Montreal...

Don't underestimate heating costs, especially in the older apartments such as in the Mile-end, Plateau, Rosemont, etc. A friend of mine who lives on the Plateau got a $700 bill last winter...

I lived on the Plateau for a while but I've been living in Ahuntsic for 9 years now, near a metro station. It's a 35-minute commute from downtown (Place Ville-Marie). I like that it's less crowded and less trendy than the Plateau, with wider streets and lots of trees. Much cheaper too. Mostly Francophone though. The rue Fleury (both east and west) is quite charming.

La rosace au plafond est magnifique, surtout combinée avec la simplicité de l'abat-jour en papier de riz, j'adore!

About $375 for a Bubble Lamp and $650 for a Tizio table lamp. That was several years ago, still love them as much. Would love to get Flos Rosy Angelis floor lamp which is around $900 but sadly I don't have room for it. I've wanted this one for over a decade now...
