Bounded by James Street to the west, Main Street to the north, Wellington Street to the east and the Niagara Escarpment to the south, Corktown is one of the original four Hamilton neighbourhoods. Home to the Hamilton GO Centre, St. Joseph’s Hospital, and the pub district of Augusta and Young Streets, Corktown is a true downtown community. Multi-floor dwellings of the neighbourhood are responsible for much of Hamilton’s skyline; however, amongst these high rises are Victorian era residences that help Corktown retain its old world nuances, serving as a reminder of Hamilton’s early Irish settlers that lived here and worked on the Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo Railway (TH&B).
The Central neighbourhood is bounded by Main, James, Queen and Stuart.
