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.

Not so PUGLY

{R.I.P. Jane Jacobs}

Check out and vote for or against some of the new buildings in Toronto. "The Puglys are different. They are awards that are judged, not by architects, developers,
planners and the like, but by the public…people like you, who want to make our city more beautiful." Last years Pugly had over 10,000 votes and even encouraged one developer to rethink their design team so that they don't end up on the wrong side of the awards ceremony. Take a couple of minutes to vote on some of the city's newest architecture. I think the architecture has significantly improved over last year's, only a few this year got a 'thumbs down' from me. Vote and let me know your opinions.

This is the view of Toronto east of Jane street, again on that bridge but this time as a panoramic view, ~180 degrees. {May 1st, 2006}O_x
