Toronto Density

The late 'Toronto v.s. New York' thread (locked at it's zenith of intellectual conversation, for shame) has inspired me to start a thread dedicated to revealing this dense downtown core. Toronto suffers from an image crisis; those who have only seen pictures, even those who have been once or twice, are unaware of it's full breadth.

So here goes, and I apologize for not actually taking any pics, believe me I'd like to. So it's google-dee-do for you.































as you can see, I'm going for unusual shots of T.O.

more to come later.....

Great compilation.

I always liked this aerial which only captures a small piece of the waterfront and heads north to a spot between Bloor and St. Clair. Imagine if all the other hubs/skylines could be viewed all at once (eg. North York, Eglinton, St. Clair).

It's too bad the sheer breadth of the dense areas cannot be captured. I'd love to see everything over 20 storeys jammed into the same footprint as downtown Chicago. It would be an eye-opener (which of course will not be acknowledged)

@ Bluga - That pic, I'm guessing, was taken from the Manulife Building, which I beleive may be approximately 50 stories. It held a record once for being the tallest concrete something in the world at some point. Look it up.

@ Hillis - wow! thanks for giving this a boost!

@ Elliot - whered did you get that photo... is that a scale bar in the corner? very nice

Bluga: That pic is taken from the outdoor patio of Panorama, a bar/lounge on the 52nd floor of the Manulife Centre. Kind of pricey but the view is worth it. I suggect going on a weekday because they charge cover on weekends.
