So Long, Roy

Camera: Pentax Spotmatic. Roy Square.

One of my myriad of complaints about the planning in Toronto is that we are slowly allowing all the little side streets and alleys that make up an essential element of the fine grain of urban streets downtown disappear. This little pedestrian lane, Roy Square will disappear when the owners of this building redevelop, likely this fall. Gone will be the little restaurants and stores that provide a respite for office workers at lunch, or delight to those who are just wandering aimless. Instead, expect an ever-increasing desert of super blocks dominated by condo towers. City building, indeed.
