I live with my family in Long Branch in South Etobicoke. Where we live still has a touch of the rural scene attached to it, but it’s only 20 minutes to downtown Toronto, which is primarily an urban scene.
Long Branch is a short ways to the south of the Stay Inn, so that if you are staying at the latter hotel during the Oct. 17 MCHS 2015 reunion weekend, you will have the chance to visit along Lake Shore Blvd. West in Long Branch if you are so inclined. It’s a good way to see gentrification, with all of its characteristic qualities, and philosophical and cultural ramifications, manifesting itself.
It’s easy to find Lake Shore Blvd. West from Evans Ave. and the East Mall, which is where the Stay Inn is located. You simply travel south along Brown’s Line, from Evans to Lake Shore.
The current post features some photos from the past weekend at Harbourfront in Toronto. If you find your way to Toronto for the Oct. 17 MCHS ’60s Reunion, Harbourfront is among the options that you may wish to visit, during your weekend stay.
We found it was a great experience to visit downtown Toronto this past weekend.
If you’re driving, watch out for the Do Not Enter signs. The streets in this area can appear to be like a labyrinth, for those of us not used to driving in Toronto. I live in the outskirts of Toronto. I seldom drive downtown. where it’s: One wrong turn and you’re dead.
That is: Be alert. Arrive alive.
