Hess Village, entrance

Hess Street, is a Lower City collector road in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It starts off at the base of the Niagara Escarpment right before Aberdeen Avenue, and is a one-way street going north past the Durand and Central neighbourhoods. Between Main and King Street West is where you will find Hess Village, a hotspot for fine dining establishments and bars. The cobbled streets are lined by historic buildings adding a unique upmarket flare to the village. Hess Street then continues onwards to the waterfront where it ends at Stuart Street, right in front of the Canadian National Railway Yard.
