Minutes from downtown but miles from ordinary, this stylish street at the heart of East Van has a little something for everyone. Thick-framed glasses, loose cardigans, and fixed-gear bicycles are the accessories of choice here. But like so many of Vancouver’s neighbourhoods, there are a variety of other characters that call Main Street home, and this trend of diversity is perfectly reflected in the endless options for food, drink and unique shopping experiences in the area. Developers have recently seized upon limited available ground, particularly around the Main Street and 7th Avenue area, with large-scale developments expected to spring up as the ‘hood’s older residents begin to sell out.
