Last Saturday, I was in downtown Toronto. We explored all around the fringes of the downtown core, including Yorkville, Chinatown, Kensington Market, the Waterfront, the Danforth, and the Toronto Islands.
A couple random shots to start out with.
Looking down Bay street (Toronto's financial district) from College.
The newly completed College Park Towers. Very nice!
Moving onto Yorkville, which is a very wealthy haven for yuppies at the north end of downtown (Bloor and Yonge). Lots of luxury condos under construction.
Here is Yorkville Park. Tacky, but cool.
Upon walking towards a slightly less gentrified neighborhood west of Yorkville, the Annex, I caught this beautiful skyline pic from north of the University of Toronto campus.
On Bloor street...
Moving onto Kensington Market. This neighborhood is a little grittier than the others, but it is very vibrant and a popular tourist attraction.
A nice shot of pedestrian traffic at Dundas/Spadina (Chinatown)!! This may be the busiest pedestrian intersection in the entire city or country. If not, it must at least be close to it. I love the look on that guy's face. Yes, the white dude with the black shirt and sunglasses.
Some shots from the Waterfront area...
I still call this the Skydome (ball park and concert place), I don't care what the Rogers corporation says.
Downtown Toronto does indeed have wildlife. Its most popular bird is the crane!!
Taking off towards the Toronto islands. The ferry is only $6.
I'm looking at some kind of power plant apparently.
As I drift away, my skyline shots just keep getting better.
Basically a whole new skyline west of the Rogers Centre (Skydome!).
On to the island now.
Here's Centreville, a random little kids park on the island.
From the opposite side of the island.
Looking towards New York State.
Toronto taxpayers' money put to good use. If they say it's art, it's art!!
The Danforth (Greek area) around dinner time.
I tried to capture the nightlife on Danforth, but my camera's not very good for that.
Hope you enjoyed!
