What is this place?

Once upon a time, there was a bus station on the north east corner of Coxwell and Danforth, a department store at Woodbine and a Danforth Ave. streetcar. Once upon a time, our neighbourhood was genteel, and stylish women glided down the wide boulevards of Danforth East doing shopping and running errands. How life has changed here.

Art of the Danforth, a week long public art walk between Greenwood and Woodbine, re-images parts of our fading facade with an art installation displaying pieces from both Toronto artists and the collective conscious of community members exploring who we are, where we came from and what our community looks like now.

Organizer Cindy Rozeboom says: "This is going to be a great way to celebrate our neighbourhood and help build community pride" and I agree.

The art walk kicks off this Friday. Check out www.artofthedanforth.com for more info.

If you've got little ones, head over to East Lynn park on Sunday for the DECA Make A Joyful Noise Family Parade at 11:00 a.m. (also part of Art of the Danforth). Check out DECA Diaries for more info. 

For a nice read, here is a story the Mirror wrote on the event:
