LMFAO you also have the H.A. clubhouse not far away. It's weird that hole area looks rediculously different in the daytime, but as soon as night falls watch out, shit gets mad weird.
Bloor/Lansdowne has got to be right up there on the scale of worst corners in the city. The best used to be one cracked out woman who always sat out in front of the buddhist temple (I tink that's what it is), across from Value Village. She'd scream at the top of her lungs at nothing. Her lipstick was always from her chin to somewhere on top of her nose and as soon as you'd look in her direction she'd eiher run at you lookin super scary or run away from you looking super scared.
And to whoever lives on Perth, I feel for youi too. My old roomie used to live o the corner house by the alley where that kid died last month (first house facing Perth north of Bloor). The guy that abducted and killed Holy Jones lived directly across the alley. We watched him get arrested and his house searched. Had to provide DNA and statements and all and all that shit. We used to sit out on his back porch and watch hookers, drug dealers, robberies etc etc etc. Not a fun area to live either.

I bought a house at bloor and dundas this summer about 3 blocks north and just WEST of Dundas. The neighbourhood is sick... but don't cross Dundas eastward... its like all of a sudden the flowers stop growing and its dark on that side.
I was always curious about Ciro's. Say no more--I'll pay a visit.Originally posted by Pyeddo

Up Lansdowne is an amazing carribian place run by 2 brothers... the name escapes me but they make some killer grub with fresh Carlsberg on tap.

lots of areas are hit or miss, duck, duck, goose in sketch factor, but I got a SUPER SKETCHY feeling when we looked at a new building on that corner.
There was a cracky donut shop, a dollar store and we could see the top of "The Brick" from the 'loft' building.

The latest thing to come down is that the Galleria is going to be raized and replaced with a new development that will be much nicer.

only a few years ago, I was >this< close to renting out an apartment in those creepy, creepy highrises at Lansdowne & Dupont... $550 /mo for a bachelor would have been nice, but in hindsight, I was never so happy to see a rental deal fall through.
