Images of Queen W, Toronto

All-Things-Creative Wednesday

I am very proud to live in the beautiful city of Toronto.

Queen St. West has been my neighbourhood since moving here (besides the short stint I had in Little Italy). And in my (biased) opinion, Queen West is the BEST neighbourhood in the city. It is colourful, cultured, and eclectic. Living in it is a mix of artists, young professionals, and eccentrics. It has art galleries galore, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars - there is something here for everyone.

Every day spent in Queen West is an adventure... for you never know what you will see or who you will encounter :)

Almost Closing Time

In the early hours of February 20, 2008 a devastating 6 alarm blaze broke out along Queen St W; burning down a full block of much-loved homes, restaurants, and shops located in heritage buildings. A piece of Toronto history was lost that day...
