What an amazing graffiti art area

If you like graffiti art I would say go to this area. Not only art work there is some amazing coffee shops and shopping areas as well.

Lots of changes along Queen. Some areas were redeveloped previously. Others more recently. A hotter favourite of the moment is a little in from the St Andrews Subway and up to the corner where Peter Pan is. South side seems to be getting more attention than the north.

And do you really want to walk your kids past "Condomland", or the crack pipe shop? Bustling with the typical big city overeducated yuppies, and the intentional unemployables. Especially pleasant on a drizzly grimy late December afternoon. The hockey games are the only thing that would draw me to Toronto by choice.

I loved walking this street and riding the 501 Streetcar in this Toronto neighborhood. The is such an eclectic mix of unique retail shops and restaurants. Yes there are upscale boutiques and retail chain stores but you still get a artistic and eccentric vibe.

Love Queen Street West, it has some great shops. The vibe is exciting, young & eclectic. A few good restaurants that are not too expensive.
