The former St. Patrick Street in Lowertown East in Ottawa was much friendlier than what it became nowadays with the massive reconfiguration it went through in the 1970s. With a much more modest width, the former St. Patrick Street (now the Old St. Patrick) was a traditional main street with its stores, dwellings and pedestrians. 

The new configuration of St. Patrick Street as a major thoroughfare in the National Capital Region directly contributed to lower the intrinsic value of one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Ottawa.
