street art

This week I'm walking to work the "no-shortcuts" way, walking up to my office east along Adelaide Street from Spadina.  It's part of the "Entertainment District" though the street with the beautiful name is rather shabby along the route I walk – it has none of the swankiness of King Street, a block south.  There are some great buildings though, and construction underway in spots, and slated to begin in others, and I expect in the next few years the area will house a lot of new glass. I'll enjoy the "shabby" bits while I can!

    That painting is great. Very clever.
    When it comes to redoing some city streets, not all progress is good.

    That is awesome! I absolutley love it!!
    I much prefer shabby streets with oodles of character rather than having everything look ultra modern. I have no problem with modern but it does tend to make you feel like you could be anywhere and I think that’s a real shame!

    Fabulous. I am such a fan of street art and always love it when the artist has a sense of humour. This is a really cool shot!
