[PHOTO] West across the Don towards downtown Toronto

leave a comment »

After exiting a friend’s home on Broadview Avenue last night, I looked out to the west, over Riverdale Park and towards the skyline of downtown. The views from here, up on the eastern slopes of the Don Valley, can be incredible.

[PHOTO] Parkdale towers over Dufferin, Queen and Dufferin

Yesterday evening, I was standing on Queen just west of Dufferin, waiting for the 501 bus, when I looked to my northeast. I remember when there were no substantial condo tower there, way back when I used to live in Parkdale behind the Drake.

[PHOTO] Four photos of, and from, the Humber Bay Arch Bridge

The Humber Bay Arch Bridge,
a pedestrian and bicycling bridge crossing the Humber, connecting what was once the old city of Toronto with Etobicoke, is a worthy subject of photos. Its position also lends itself to the taking of photos.

[PHOTO] Six photos of a walk along Grenadier Pond in High Park on a hot fall day

This particular September day was a hot one, fall making up for this Toronto summer’s lack of heat. There were fewer people taking advantage of this heat than I might have expected. All the more sights for me, then.

[PHOTO] Twelve photos of Ontario Place and scenes from the William C. Davis trail (#ontarioplace)

This post, last of my four from Ontario Place, shows some of the things I saw heading east back to the mainland of Toronto, past the architecture of Ontario Place and along the William C. Davis Trail i Trillium Park. The views this trail offers, of the Toronto skyline and of the Toronto Islands, are unparalleled.

[URBAN NOTE] Four Toronto links: Bloor and Dundas, Green Room, archeology park, Hearn

  • The scale of the changes impending for Bloor and Dundas is, literally, immense. blogTO reports.
  • Alas, the venerable Green Room hidden behind Bloor and Brunswick is set to leave its abode. blogTO reports.
  • I love this proposal at Spacing by Michael McClelland for an archeology park in storied downtown Toronto.
  • I agree with Simon Bredin at Torontoist that it would be a shame for Torontonians to losing public access to the Hearn Generating Station.
