When writer Hélèna Katz was researching her article “A fun-filled walk around Yellowknife’s Old Town,” she wrote about “the downtown core’s tidy rectangular blocks which give way to the winding streets of Old Town.”

Katz reported: “This funky neighbourhood down the hill looks like people built their ramshackle houses wherever it seemed convenient. Then the surveyors showed up and built streets around them. As my stern Grade 7 teacher would’ve said with a disapproving look, the place seems higgledy-piggledy. But that — and the local artists who live in Old Town — are what give it a distinctive character.
