I consider King Street Saint John to be the centre of the universe. It’s like Main Street except without the 6 lanes of traffic.
So because King Street is on a hill, I propose the following:
- If you are at the top of King Street you are enjoying Uptown Saint John. Imperial Theatre, Saint John City Market, King Square, and so on.
- If you are at the bottom of King Street down on our beautiful waterfront you are Downtown. You can look up King Street to the top to see what’s happening “uptown”.
- If you’re on Germain Street enjoying a Bella’s Ice Cream you are “mid town.” Just like how all the cool bits of New York City are happening in mid town, welcome to Germain Street & Grannan Street.
The above perspective represents only the view of Derek and not of Bella’s or any of the other Billingsley family. They are all rolling their eyes at my Dad Jokes.
