Corktown is one of the original four Hamilton neighbourhoods, bound by Wellington Street South on the east to James Street South on the west and from Main Street East on the north to the Niagara Escarpment on the south. Walkable and bikeable, Corktown is a true downtown community. The neighbourhood is home to the Hamilton GO Station, St. Joseph's Hospital, Hamilton Downtown Family YMCA, parks, trails, and various restaurants and pubs. Multi-floor dwellings of the neighbourhood are responsible for much of Hamilton’s skyline; however, among 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).
