I've been selling real estate in Hamilton for about 24 years and I know Hamilton inside an out. If this career fails, I KNOW I would be an asset to a taxi company. I spend a lot of time out and about and one of my favorite spots to stop and chill for a minute or two is James Street North.
James Street was Hamilton's little Italy or Little Portugal and you can see influences everywhere, in the gardens of nearby homes, the fish shops and grocery stores to the restaurants.
I seldom miss the Art Crawl, held second Friday of the month.
The street closes down, galleries open their doors late into the night, the atmosphere is just so electric, it reminds me of New York's West Village.
Conveniently located, steps to the Go Station and Public Transportation, Corktown is a commuter's dream.
The neighbouhood is dotted with semi-detached homes, larger detached homes and condos. Most condos were built in the 1960's with the exception of Chateau Royale, a hip condo building on James South, with great units and tons of amenities.
Homes start at around 200K+-.
