The Bata Shoe Museum. Yes, a museum full of shoes. Yes, we went--it was compact but cool. They had a Roger Vivier exhibit going on, with Serge Gainsbourg's music playing the background. Talk about surreal.
Liebskind's addition to the Royal Ontario Museum.
There's a lot of construction in Toronto right now. Canada didn't suffer as much as the U.S. in the recession, but that means that housing prices are a lot higher there than they are here.
The CN Tower. You can pay $35 to go to the top, or you can buy an entree in the CN Tower's restaurant and see the view and exhibits included in the price of your lunch or dinner. Lunch with a glass of wine at the CN will run you about $45 or $50, but the food is fantastic and the view can't be beat.
Park near one of the marinas on Lake Ontario.
Flatiron-shaped building near the coast of Toronto (the city borders Lake Ontario).
Under the bridge of a small urban park at night. I think this water was coming off of a cooling tower, but I couldn't quite tell.
Toronto's equivalent of Times Square.
Loft buildings on West Queen Street. I saw some wonderful shops, but alas, very few queens.
