St. Urbain Street (officially Rue Saint-Urbain) is a major one-way street located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The street has historically been home to Montreal's well-established Jewish community, who settled in the area at the turn of the 20th century. Writer Mordecai Richler often documents what life was like on this street in novels such as St. Urbain's Horseman.[1] Today much of the street has been gentrified.
