An article by Complex has confirmed what Gastown residents have long suspected: Vancouver’s Gastown is one of the most stylish neighbourhoods in the world.
Of the fifty neighbourhoods on the list, Gastown placed fourth. Complex Style notes that, “Gastown’s blocks are full of gorgeous Victorian buildings that provide unique scenery for what’s currently an emerging neighborhood. It also offers a mix of cool boutique fashion shops, interior design stores, restaurants, nightclubs, and real estate.”
“All in all, Gastown is home to numerous well-dressed people whose grassroots style reflects the community,” notes the article.
What a glowing review!
The 1st Arrondissement in Paris, Tokyo’s Hrajuku and New York’s SoHo earned the top three spots on the list with Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain in Berlin rounding out the fifth spot. No other Canadian neighbourhoods cracked the top ten.
