If there’s a neighbourhood that exemplifies the so-called “new” Hamilton, in its varied and changing complexity, it just may be Corktown.
It features a mix of everything going on here: rejuvenation, heritage, high-rise living, poverty, gentrification, social services, wealth, neglect, ethnic diversity, colourful characters, Toronto transplants, rail service, parks, culture and restaurants.
Like Hamilton itself, Corktown is in transition, and on Saturday (March 7), residents were invited to a neighbourhood meeting hosted by the Corktown Neighbourhood Association and the Social Planning and Research Council.
