TORONTO - Downtown & Waterfront (May 22)

Recommended Posts

Toronto is Canada's financial capital. The major Canadian banks all have skyscraper presence here. They are clustered around Bay Street, which is the Canadian version of Wall Street, albeit slightly more spacious.

The walkable part of the downtown waterfront is quite small. Many of the lands are disused and abandoned from previous port and industrial activities. There is a lack of a continuous waterfront promenade and parkland and the waterfront as a whole is quite sad for Canada's largest city. On many summer weekends residents drive at least an hour north to other lakes and cottages instead of heading downtown to Lake Ontario.

There are some good spots along this stretch though. These photos show some parkland and promenades and lots of residents living in new condominiums.

I didn't know Toronto had a stock exchange!

I assume you're being sarcastic. If the largest city in a country wouldn't have a stock exchange, what cities would?

In terms of average daily trading volume the Toronto Stock Exchange ranks only behind NYs exchanges in North America.
