These are a few of my favourite things… about New Westminster, in pictures.
New Westminster is blessed with many examples of lovingly preserved and restored heritage houses from around the turn of the last century, many of them in the beautiful Queen’s Park neighbourhood.
The Fraser River is the lifeblood of the Lower Mainland. It’s a working river, its water used for farming, pulp mills, fishing, hydroelectricity, and for transport. I like to sit on a bench or lean against the railings and watch the river traffic passing by.
Near the newly re-opened River Market at New Westminster Quay can be found Angelina’s, my favourite place to have a mid-morning breakfast after a lazy holiday lie-in.
My preferred watering hole in New West is Drink, at 609 Columbia Street. Drink has unfancy but tasty food, friendly service, a cosy atmosphere, and music that’s played at a volume that allows for conversation.
These are just a few examples of places and things I like in New Westminster. I’d love to hear from other fans and residents what your favourite New West things are.
