so the conclusion of Inglewood, the thing that gets me is the lack of people traffic, and the fact most stores close at 5pm.

That looks like a neighbourhood with a lot of potential. The architecture of the Fraser and Seabloom building actually blew me away; Alberta is very young so a lot of the stuff that survives from the 1910s is pretty squat; that looks like it could be at home in the Lower East Side.

Unfortunately, the main street looks a little too tidy, sort of like main street Ontario in a town of 10,000. The sidewalk is two feet too narrow, made out of that lamentable interlocking brick that was popular in the mid-1980s and, like you say, too many of the businesses are the kinds that close up at 5PM - not enough restaurants, cafes, delis or bars.
 
Calgary's Inglewood neighborhood

UG66: Good tour of the Inglewood neighborhood-as was said it is somewhat like more eastern areas in appearance. It seems like an area with some potential...LI MIKE
