Thanks to recent gentrification, Halifax's North End has become the place to be. A mix of low-cost housing like bungalows and duplexes, as well as classic wood-paneled Nova Scotian houses brings a great sense of character to the area. As is most of the city's main neighbourhoods, the North End is an easy walk to the downtown core, Atlantic ocean and most main attractions. However, the exponentially growing number of local restaurants, cafes, grocers and entertainment venues popping up on Agricola, Gottigen and North Street have made the area extremely accessible and exciting.
The North End is a fully diverse and integrated community filled with Halagonians of all ages and backgrounds. Just about anyone can and will fit in.

The increasingly expensive cost to rent near universities has made this neigbourhood extremely alluring to many young scholars. Furthermore, the newly popular area has attracted tattooed and espresso drinking "hipsters" who continue to bring their artistic and cultural street style with them.
The diverse neighbourhood has a perfect balance of independence and community. While many events, such as the North by Night Market brings residents together, many North Enders enjoy the laid back lifestyle away from the touristy attractions of downtown Halifax. It feels like a breath of fresh air and allows for more creative expression and appreciation. Locally sourced everything offers a true sense of Haligonian pride and small commercial businesses fuel the neighbourhood, keeping the large and impersonal chains away.
