^^ The commercial strip looks fantastic to me.
There's so much great visual stimulation; it's a feast for the eyes.
The abundance of well maintained brick homes in conjunction with the nearby retail/commercial strips makes this area fabulous! Subway service is great as well. I missed most of the Annex when I was in Toronto back in April. I really hope to head back to the city next summer for Pride weekend if possible. Fingers crossed. I have so many other great neighbourhoods to explore!
Thanks for the photos, flar!
