It's so great to see downtown Hamilton neighbourhoods being discovered by people who love old houses, walkability, and the proximity to music, art, good food and trails. Dylan Hudecki, Skye Collins and their young family love the pulse of their Strathcona Neighbourhood. Like many young couples, their house is a centre for creativity rather than consumption. Surrounded by art, photos, handcrafted furniture, their house holds the personality of those who live in it. In the basement, Hudecki's music studio captures the organic vibe of a 60's coffee house. Young families committed to living downtown, and involved in civic issues add a lasting vitality to the core. My story and Scot Gardner's photos are on the Hamilton Spectator website.

The piano was a freebee from a neighbour.
The famous photo wall, friends, family, they all are captured by the camera and continue to have a presence at meal times.
