Notre-Dame-de-Grâce

'''Notre-Dame-de-Grâce''' ( ), also nicknamed '''NDG''', is a residential neighbourhood of Montreal located in the city's West End. An independent municipality until annexed by the City of Montreal in 1913, NDG is today one half of the borough of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. It comprises two wards, that of Loyola to the west and Notre-Dame-de-Grace to the east. NDG is bordered by four independent enclaves; its eastern border is shared with the city of Westmount, Quebec (Westmount), whereas to the north and west it is bordered by the towns of Montreal West (Montreal West, Quebec), Hampstead (Hampstead, Quebec) and Cote St. Luc (Côte-Saint-Luc). In 2013, it had a population of 66,495. NDG plays a pivotal role in serving as the commercial and cultural hub for Montreal's predominantly Anglophone West End, with Sherbrooke Street West running the length of the community and providing the principal commercial artery. The community is roughly bounded by Grey Avenue and the Decarie Expressway to the east, Chemin-de-la-Cote-St-Luc (Côte-Saint-Luc Road) to the north, Connaught Avenue in the west and highway 20 and the Falaise-St-Jacques (Saint-Jacques Escarpment) to the south.
