Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Toronto: Photo Walk 2014
It was overcast and chilly throughout the day but not as cold as the day before where temps were at -3 degrees Celsius.My friends and I were on our way to the metro heading toward downtown Toronto when we saw …Those are some pretty large nests.
Looks like we’re about to enter a portal ahead.
When you enter the station you can purchase tokens to enter the subway. These tokens are smaller than the ones the MTA used to use decades ago. One thing that stood out to me once inside the station was how clean it was as opposed to New York’s subways. The difference is night and day. It really shames NYC to be such a wealthy city and yet be so dirty compared to other large cities. The other thing I noticed was the width of the tracks and subway cars is larger than that here in NYC. Someone had foresight here and realized cramming many people into tight subway cars isn’t in the best interests of the riders.Once outside the metro we made our way through the streets in search of somewhere to have brunch.We ended up on the famous Church Street of Toronto the LGBT area of the city.
The first place we encountered that looked good for brunch was Lola’s Kitchen.There was a small wait once we got inside as this place seems quite popular for brunch.
The decor inside was interesting and had quite a bit of art work throughout.
Once we looked over what Lola offers we settled on our selections.
The margarita wasn’t that good to me. I guess I’m just used to getting more alcohol in the states. 😉 Once we finished brunch I decided to make a pit stop to the restroom before our photo walk continued. When I entered the restroom I was pleasantly surprised to see the stall door painted.Pretty cool I think. Anyway after paying our tab we ventured back out into the cold with full stomachs bidding Lola’s a fond farewell.As we walked further down Church Street we came across the Rainbow crosswalk.
Church has some pretty interesting things out on display.
Incredible public art displays were all over the place. Stay tuned for Toronto: Photo Walk continued…
