Toronto walk (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

NOTE: Big pictures. Might take a while to load

I was downtown Toronto a couple of weeks ago to visit a university I might attend next year. It is right in the heart of downtown, and if I am accepted there, I will be studying urban planning. Definitely a good place to study it. I've been busy lately, so I haven't had a chance to post some pictures until now. Enjoy!

Alright. We start our walk right outside the university, around Church & Gould Streets. Here, we are looking through an alleyway. To the right is the new Centre for Computing and Engineering at Ryerson University under construction.

I then went inside to the Eaton Centre, a big mall downtown. The first pic is of the Canada Life building through the entrance glass.

I stepped outside, and took a picture of the new Yonge-Dundas square... at least some of it. In the background is a brutalist building on the Ryerson campus.

At this point I am walking north on Yonge St. Here you can see the Canon Theatre... one of many cultural institutions in the city.

Yonge St. streetscape. It is the longest street in the world.

Shops and condos.

More shops along Yonge St., in nicely restored buildings as well.

Nice building... up for sale too. Maybe if I win the lottery someday I'll buy it.

Right beside the previous building, another nice building up for sale.

The old Bank of Montreal building.

The Old City Hall, now used as a courthouse. The only reason they built a new one is because they ran out of room in this one.

Old City Hall and Canada Life building.

Facade of Old City Hall. They don't build 'em like they used to.

OK, I have to get going, I have homework to work on. PLENTY more pics coming soon... I have a lot to upload and post here.

Awesome pics! I especially like the old city hall. It's great that they found another use for it instead of tearing it down. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your pics.

An interesting mixture of architectural styles, billboards and street life.

...and you're right swags; they don't build 'em like that anymore.

BTW What are you doing your homework for? Get out there and take more great pics for "Toronto walk (Part 2)" ;)

I thought I did make a Toronto Walk part II... I can't seem to find it on the forums though... maybe the admins can help me out with this one? Anyways, I still have some leftover pics for part III, I have some spare time this week so expect a part III shortly.
