[PHOTO] Two maps, Dupont Street

The juxtaposition of these two tapestry maps in adjacent storefront windows of a building apparently converted to residential uses, one a map of the Bermuda Triangle and a one of the map of the Junction Triangle neighbourhood where the building is located, is very funny.

[PHOTO] Four photos of Lansdowne and Dupont

Dupont and Lansdowne is an intersection at the heart of an emerging cluster of high-rises, some of which are at least eye-catching.

[PHOTO] Three photos from the Wallace Avenue Bridge on a foggy evening

Last night I was walking west on the Wallace Avenue footbridge, at around 11 o’clock, when I took note of the warm glowing fog underneath. A Union-Pearson Express car passed under me between the second and third photos, and is still visible in the third.

[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: House of Anansi, Why Not Theatre, York Street, Vimy Ridge, murder

  • Toronto Life takes a look at the House of Anansi bookstore on Sterling Road, set to take on a higher profile as that street becomes bigger.
  • The Globe and Mail profiles Why Not Theatre, a Toronto troupe that has opted not to acquire a permanent space.
  • CBC Toronto takes a look at the campaign of Daniel Rotsztain to save the York Street pillars, legacies of old freeways turned by time into public art.
  • Descendants of acorns taken from Vimy Ridge to Scarborough are now repopulating that battlefield. CBC reports.
  • Yesterday, Toronto suffered its 90th homicide of the year, making a new record. CBC reports.

[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: Stackd, Parkdale, paradise Theatre, Bloor/Symington, Hadrian

  • Urban Toronto notes that Stackd, a container-based community market, is taking form near Fort York.
  • A Parkdale community group is seeking assurances of affordable housing from local developers. The Toronto Star reports.</li
  • The restoration of the Paradise Theatre on Bloor, in Bloorcourt, is proceeding apace. blogTO reports.
  • The intersection of Bloor and Symington is getting better. (I imagine that the growth of Sterling Road is one trigger.) blogTO reports.
  • This NOW Toronto review of the Rufus Wainwright opera Hadrian suggests promise. Perhaps a remount?
