Montreal Hippodrome – main building

Unlike its various stables, the main building of the Montreal Hippodrome was accessible to graffers and urban explorers only for about 3 to 4 weeks in March 2018. Prior to that the spot was kept off-limits by security, and after that the whole site was fenced in ahead of the planned demolition.

Only a selection of what I have photographed is presented here. For clarity’s sake I am showing only the more elaborate pieces. What was created on the last sunday before the fence went up is missing from the retrospective below as I was unable to get back inside to photograph it.

  • Montreal Hippodrome – the general information page
  • the 2 saddling stables (to be published soon)
    (where the horses are brought for preparation before racing)
  • the 6 regular stables (to be published soon)
    (where the horses are kept in stable boxes when not racing)

Contrairement à ses diverses écuries, l’édifice principal de l’Hippodrome de Montréal n’a été accessible pour les graffeurs et explorateurs urbains que pour une durée de 3 à 4 semaines en mars 2018. Avant cette date la sécurité était très stricte autour de l’édifice, et à la fin de mars 2018 le site complet de l’Hippodrome a été entouré d’une clôture en vue de la démolition.

La galerie-photo ci-dessous n’inclut que les pièces les plus élaborées que j’ai eu la chance de photographier. De plus, ce qui a été créé au cours du dernier dimanche avant l’érection de la cloture autour du site n’y figure pas puisque l’accès y a été coupé et je n’ai pas pu y retourner pour les photos.

bleachers, lower deck

There wasn’t much wall space on the lower deck, hence very little graffiti was done here.

Il y avait très peu d’espace mural à la galerie inférieure, donc très peu d’oeuvres y ont été créées.

bar/restaurant deck

The Western half of the main building had a bar/restaurant area with view over the tracks. Instead of bleachers, this section had counters and tables for patrons to eat, drink and mingle.

L’aile ouest de l’édifice principal incluait un bar/resto avec vue sur la piste de course. Au lieu de sièges, cette section était composée de comptoirs et tables pour que les clients puissent manger, boire et socialiser.
