Hastings-Sunrise

Vancouver's Hastings neighborhood is a strong family oriented community that is situated between Boundry Rd (East) & Nanaimo St. (West) and between Broadway (South) & The Burrard Inlet (North). Hastings is mainly a residential community, with the exception of The Port of Vancouver which resides in the Burrard Inlet and is the areas chief employer. The housing in the area consists mostly of single family, craftsman style homes along lovely tree lined streets. Nestled in the middle of Hastings is the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE), a fairground with rides, arenas, and a ˝ mile thoroughbred race track. Recently the city has begun phasing out the PNE and slowly turning it into what will be Vancouver's second largest park, called Hastings Park. Hastings is also home to New Brighton Pool, Vancouver's oldest public pool, established in 1936.

Hastings is a historically important community with many of the cities firsts happening in the area, including Vancouver's first road, telephone, post office, hotel, wharf, museum, and subdivision. Hastings began its important development in 1911, when local residents voted to join the city of Vancouver. Before this time Hastings was known for being a resort town, with many of Vancouver's social elite owning homes and property in the area. After the vote to join Vancouver the growth of this area was fast and steady, and better routes to Vancouver and New Westminster were established. Today Hastings is known as a quiet, diverse, working class neighborhood.
