Toronto street art or graffiti?
Urban landscaping?
Cement trucks and giant signs – a sign of investment, construction and jobs
Construction cranes – jobs, money, more towers and condominiums
Ruth’s Chris Steak House – apparently a good place to get an exquisite steak despite the tongue twisting name
TTC – the better way to get around Toronto – fast, efficient, safe and mostly clean

Explore Yonge Street in Toronto – some old buildings nicely refurbished.
More of Yonge Street Toronto
A street chalk artist at work on Yonge Street in Toronto
Dundas Square at Dundas and Yonge St in Toronto
The venerable Hudson’s Bay Company – the oldest company in Canada, no longer Canadian owned.
The Hockey Hall of Fame on Front Street. That’s still Canadian.
Glance up Bay Street at the clock tower of old Toronto City Hall
Scan the bank towers of Toronto. No sign of Spiderman, Daredevil or Fantastic Four. Darn.
The CN Tower is still dominating the skyline. No King Kong climbing the tower. Everything’s okay.
Back on the GO Train with those abruptly upright seats.
Another day visit to Toronto. So many sights to notice. Nice to visit. Glad to leave. Looking forward to visiting again.
