Riverview for the parkways and no thru traffic. Disadvantage? sitting on Osborne in traffic knitting sweaters and trying to get to St. James.

You probably want to stay away from Fort Garry. Its 10 minutes from downtown, has all kinds of amenities, including great parks, but its kind of expensive. Too many people trying to move in here. Try T'cona.

I really liked my house while I was in college because it was really close to school, but now this neighbourhood seems kind of lame.

Down with Brooklands!

lol "el_bombero"

Plus you need to buy a Smart Car (or a bike) to even move into this area. That's why the left coast is emptying out to Fort Garry.

North End.

Been here for 17 years and love it. Got the big trees, nice neighbors,no pretensions,a little baby library, corner stores and great bus service. Oh, and musn't forget Alycia's and the North Star. Never have to cook.

You know I moved in from a small town and looked all over the city.
Rented for a year until I could find something.
I travel a lot and like to get out of the city quite often so I picked Fort Gary, by Jubilee.
I’m 10 minutes to the airport, 15 minutes to the East perimeter with the camper, 10 minutes to Oak Bluff, 3 Minutes to Keneston, 5 to 10 minutes to downtown depending on the time of day, Costco, Wal Mart, All the grocery stores, and soon to be IKEA.
There are a few bays and areas that are off a few blocks from Pembina that are very quiet. I purposely went to the back yard to listen and looked at maps to see and hear the noise levels of traffic, rail and businesses.
Very little crime and not all the houses look the same as your neighbor.
Love this area called the Planets

St.Boniface is the nicest area to live because it's got character, a mix of business and residential, and it's safe.

I've been in Fort Richmond for the last few years and really like it there. Quiet but friendly neighbours, not too much traffic but close to groceries, and plenty of shopping just a short drive away in the Kenaston area or St. Vital. It'll be interesting to see if anything changes once the stadium is running.

On POF since February, 2005

After reviewing...
Most comments / assertions with respect to this query, I would say MOST areas or subdivisions in Wpg. are quite suitable for most people. From such-an ambiguous question, its clear one would have to define more of a subjective aspect or segment of an area that would be conclusive.
-Safety
-Property Values
-Cleanliness
-Designed

Just to name a few would naturally come to mind. If one compares these values, I would the clear choice would be
Heritage Park, Sunny St.James

Home is where you hang your shingle.... it's your relationship with your neighbors that makes or breaks it...
What is great for me won't be for others... diversity of opinion is A-OK !

By a river, Scotia Area... North End... Real people, real diverse... and real pretty ! :)
