Leonard, Lindsay and Erica at Leonard Cohen's Place in Montreal

Leonard, Lindsay and Erica visited Montreal this weekend.  Erica was invited to a camp friend's Bat Mitzvah and Lindsay wanted to visit McGill University. Their school is on winter break and Leonard is also on a break.  So the timing worked out beautifully.

I asked them to pass by Leonard Cohen's house if they had time.  And they did.

They sent me photos from the front of Leonard Cohen's home on Rue Vallieres which is across the street from Parc du Portugal.  They sent me the photos immediately. An instant treat.

Gosh, I  love modern technology.  

Here is a description from the Leonard Cohen Forum (written by Len Bierbrier)
Leonard's home is a rowhouse at 28 Vallieres. It is next to a Zen center, which is at the corner of the street down from St Laurent. St Laurent, called "The Main" used to be the bohemian (sic) center of Montreal.... the site of many well known strip clubs, Chinatown and fantastic restaurants (e.g.Moishes), but all that is changed now.
