Default Re: On Yonge Street

thanks for posting this article! It interested me for several reasons: when I was there in May, I walked down (up?) Yonge to about Bloor, hoping to get to 1365. By that point I realized I couldn't walk there - next time will take the train! But on my way back to the Chelsea I noticed the advertising about the future building(s) in that area. Omigosh!

But the best part was when I first walked out of the Chelsea that morning on a dry run to find the Massey and made the turn onto Yonge. "On Yonge Street" took on a whole new meaning for me!

Thanks again...

Ann, glad the article struck a chord with you

I really don't know if there's much to see, or if anyone's even there during a typical day (at EMP)

there are future buildings going up everywhere in the city + GTA, agh
