This site is meant to introduce you to the Toronto that you do not see on postcards or calendars. There are communities in Toronto that do not receive recognition from the media, politicians or from people that do not live there. The Inner City has been established to introduce you to these neighbourhoods in and around Toronto and provide you with a perspective of the city that is more than the CN Tower and Yonge Street. The blog is changed everyday so be sure to check it out regularly.

Innovation at SCN

Here are some nice and innovative vehicles. They're different and rare so I had to snap some pics. {March 25th, 2006}

I didn't even check what car this is. The doors, video screens and sound system took my attention away.

If anyone knows where I can get one of these let me know. I need something simplistic like this for this summer!
The H2 symbol came from light blocks inside the car along the window. Pretty nice.

On the back of a Cadillac Escalade.

I think this thing is a civic but its covered in Matrix code. It was a big risk, i don't think it was worth it.

The grill and everything else on this truck was pretty cool.

The flat screen here flips over the trunk door and fold parallel to the door when closed. Its pretty creative.

Nice rims make any vehicle look good!

Lucky Guys at Sports Compact Nights {March 25th, 2006}

I recognized this beautiful model from a fashion show competition in my neighbourhood that I watched a couple of years ago, as well as from my school campus a couple of times. She is Patricia J and I had to take a picture with her as she rocked her Carabao energy drink shirt, the company she was working for that day. To my surprise she said she'd post this pic on her site too! Look out for her in and around Toronto as she grows in popularity. Check out her site to see where you've probably seen her or where you may spot her next. Patricia J @

Two girls, I think myself and the ten other guys who flipped out our cameras were the lucky ones here.

Two girls and his hands are in a stratgic spot! He's either smart or one lucky guy.

Another lucky guy with two arms on his shoulders!

This girl and another were doing some nice dancing on the stage that day. Good thing my camera has a video mode!

Don't you always hate the guys running the show. Not because they're up close and personal with the girls and your not but they're always saying something dumb or the same thing again and again!

I went to Sports Compact Night @ the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Check here all this week for pictures of cars, girls and everything in between! You won't be dissappointed!
I took this one afterwards outside the TMCC and stitched it together. I didn't have my tripod so I had to use the ledge which worked out better. {March 25th, 2006}

Toonies out of you

Yonge and Dundas, Toronto. O_x {March 24th, 2006}

After work, Clayson Road. Factories on this street run 24 hours a day and put out tonnes of pollution and take in just as much resources. If your on Hwy 400 look west and you'll see all these factories immediately beside you. O_x {March 22th, 2006}

There was a bundle of cardboard or newspapers on fire behind Willy's Jerk at North York Sheridan Mall. I caught these pictures on the way to work. A guy was shot in this alley a couple of weeks ago actually. O_x {March 15th, 2006}

After work

Back Alley Gould

If you have been to Yonge and Dundas in the last 5 years you know it is a mess because of the Metropolis entertainment complex being built on the north east corner. This alley off of Gould Street is where most of supplies for the Metropolis project is being received. Now the construction crew has taken over half of Victoria Street so wer Ryerson students are forced to put up with taking detours, walking indirect paths and walking on dirt, rocks and everything else every morning. This building better be beautiful. At least they've picked up construction. It's taken them 5 years to build 4 floors and a basement but those 4 floors have been built in the last 3 months so if politicians, bureaucrats and private minds take it easy for a while maybe it could be done by the end of the year. Here's hoping!

Break of light

Outside Union Station. This photo turned out pretty good considering the light was too bright to look towards, I just pointed my camera in its direction and took the shot while shielding my eyes. [Click To Enlarge] {March 11th, 2006}

Bay and Front, looking north. The city put up barriers down the middle of Bay Street south of Front Street to stop the jay-walkers from crossing the street during the evening rush. You can still slip through them which makes them pointless. {March 11th, 2006}

'Free Tibet' is the word on the street

Students for a Free Tibet had a police-escorted march down University Avenue yesterday. They made themselves loud and clear on their standpoint. I would know what that is if I wasn't in a rush and had I read the information paper a girl that was part of the parade handed to me. Its still on me and I'll get to it. {March 10th, 2006}

Toronto skyline from on top of the RedPath trains on Queens Quay {March 2nd, 2006}

Click to enlarge and you'll see why I took this picture {March 2nd, 2006}

That's my camera! I just thought it would be a cool shot. It was an advertisement in a bus shelter. {March 2nd, 2006}

Black Creek at Jane and Wilson {March 1st, 2006}

Mutual Street, north of Dundas Street East. These buildings are actually opposites: one is ugly the other is amazing. The one on the right has nice architecture on the outside that blends into the Ryerson community, has a Dominion supermarket and several other businesses in it, and has residential units upstairs. The one on the left is some government building or an office building or something, I never bother to find out. {March 2nd, 2006}

Atop RedPath trains along Queens Quay East {March 2nd, 2006}

Guvernment night club at Lower Jarvis and Queens Quay East. {March 2nd, 2006}
