The most significant change for NDG came in 1966 – 1967 with the construction of Decarie express way which literally split the borough by digging a huge scar in NDG Urban grid.
Today, NDG is a very vast borough with many contrasts because of its size ( NDG is now part of the district Côte-des-Neiges Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.)
