[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: fall, Danforth church, 51 Metcalfe, No Name, Toronto Zoo

  • blogTO notes that this fall in Toronto is likely to see erratic temperature swings.
  • This sign on the lawn of a church on the Danforth warning off trespassers might have a defensible rationale, but it still seems off to me. The Toronto Star reports.
  • This rental at 51 Metcalfe Street does seem sad to me. blogTO describes it.
  • I rather like this No Name mural. blogTO shows it.
  • As argued here at the Toronto Star, the Toronto Zoo probably should also be understood as one of the key elements of Scarborough.

[VIDEO] Walking across the last crossing at Yonge and Eglinton in the pouring rain

Walking home from work an hour ago, I was drenched by the rain. Yonge and Eglinton saw the rain dancing off the pavement.
