Toronto reminds me of Chicago for some odd reason that I could never explain. Toronto lovers please don't take offense, it looks like an amazing city and I'd really love to visit.

By the way these are wonderful photos zen.

Thanks DirtyNYer, I haven't been to Chicago in years, but it is a beautiful skyline as well.

Here's a couple of me with the city.

Great pics. I was taking evening classes in Toronto last summer into autumn last year where I would drive two hours up the QEW every monday afternoon and loved the drive every time..not because of the horrible rush hour traffic on the way there, but because of the ride home at night. Toronto is a beautiful city at night and I miss going up there every week. These photos hold me over.
