For those folks planning to attend the concert in Montreal in November, I have prepared a map of Cohen sites that might be helpful for you.

The sites are basically divided by color:
Teal hearts are scheduled events
Purple hearts are Cohen sites
Olive hearts are restaurants Cohen patronized
Brown hearts are miscellaneous items

I have included photos (sometimes more than one) and information with each listed item which can include websites, phone numbers and explanations.

OK, have to show my ignorance here. What is the Cohen connection to the Clock Tower and Habitat 67?

Great map Marie. Thanks!

No problem, Wendy. If you click on each item, I explain the connection. But I love that you asked!

The Clock Tower is part of Cité Mémoire, which is that projection production where different historical aspects of Montreal are depicted. On the clock tower, Leonard's "Suzanne" is projected.

Habitat 67 is where Leonard filmed the video for "in My Secret Life."

Thanks Marie! I clicked but it may be that the functionality is reduced on my iPad.

Isn't it great to learn something new every day?!

Marie,

This is such a valuable source map of all things LC. Many, many thanks for doing this and bringing it to us.

Any chance someone will organize a bus tour of these sites?

Thank you so much, Marie! - your map and annotations are most useful :)
As a lifelong fan of 50 years, who was privileged to attend Leonard's concerts in the UK, I am beyond excited to be going to Montreal!
