An interesting Toronto fact: Toronto has more than 5000 (yes, that's thousand, not hundred) total stores and restaurants in the downtown area. There are really only a handful of cities in the United States and Canada that even have 1000 total shops/restaurants in the downtown core, so 5000+ is an astounding number.

It's great to see street level pics. Thanks!

Wow! 5000? I really need to pay a visit to Toronto someday.

Yeah, there's something like 3800 stores and 1300 restaurants in downtown Toronto. That's more than some entire cities.

Let's see...Detroit has, what? 380 Downtown stores & restaurants? We need to take some lessons from Toronto!

I'd love to know where people get numbers like those for stores and restaurants. Is it the chamber of commerce or a city agency? How do they define downtown in Toronto? How do we know the numbers are real?

I found a .pdf file about the state of downtown Toronto written several years ago that gave all kinds of statistics. It was online, unfortunately I didn't save it or the address. The 5000 number isn't hard to believe though. The PATH (underground walkway system that connects the buildings in the CBD) alone has more than 1200 retailers and more than 4 million square feet of retail.

I believe the numbers. I wonder how to get these numbers for other cities so we can compare them. It seems like it would be hard to compare since there is so little agreement as to what the downtown area boundaries are for each city. Still any well defined numbers are interesting.
