Being such a massive municipality, every community in the HRM has it's own unique quirks and characteristics. If we could give Nova Scotia a description overall, it would probably be "The province that sells the most rain jackets, excessively uses donair sauce and pretends the Dome is actually home (for Cape Bretoners the Capri)".
I asked a bunch of different people their opinions on neighbourhoods in the HRM, and this is the hilarious truth I got. So here are twenty brutally honest one sentence descriptions of The HRM’s many neighbourhoods:
1. South End Halifax
Christmas lights competition- Brothers Edition.
2. North End Halifax
You’ve attempted veganism.
3. Park West
In Junior High you probably wore hightop sneakers.
The only place you can catch waves that aren't from the ocean- The Wave Pool.
Sack Vegas...does anyone actually know why it’s called this?
Couldn’t decide between the Escalade or the BMW honey so I bought both.
8. Hammonds Plains
We could buy the BMW but we got the Prius instead.
9. Clayton Park
How did they get the Canada Games Centre, a Glass Library and Soccer Nova Scotia?
Known by all Haligonians as “The Dark Side”, isn't actually that bad though.
11. Downtown Halifax
Just a big ol’ hill.
Grab your flannel, we’re going for a ride in the civ bomb.
13. Shearwater/Eastern Passage
What’s that smell?
Your last hope on a holiday...The Cold Beer Store.
Where the “Sea people” live.
16. Creighton Park
You can’t sit with us if you don’t paddle.
17. Portland Estates
Where are the trees?
18. Cole Harbour
Sidney Crosby’s hometown, and we can’t let people forget it.
Lots of trails.
