Formally a pretty rough area and it's still a little sad, but it's coming along. Lots of really beautiful Victorian houses that are being bought up, renovated and help to turn the hood into a neighbourhood. More than a few cute little shops and galleries,...More

This section of Queen Street West from Gladstone to Bathurst is filled with small, independent, boutique shops. It was definitely worth visiting if you enjoy window shopping. From Bathurst to Spadina, there are many fabric stores.

Rode here in the tram as we wanted to explore outside of the Toronto city centre area. This is now a rather rundown but hip and happening area, a little funky and bohemian with restaurants and boutique shops.
