Toronto G20 Summit Madness & Chillaxing At The Kensington Market
Taking photos and video at random events during the fall season in Toronto. Buying sushi grade fish in Chinatown, watching cars burn at the G20 and a stroll through Kensington market.
Preparing a delicious sushi feast for my friends is one of my Sunday hobbies.
My friend Paul dropped by the day before and explored Chinatown for sushi fish and some Chinese cuisine.
Later that evening we had a fantastic birthday party at the Drake Hotel. This lounge has such an awesome vibe, truly worth a visit.
Kensington Market is a distinctive multicultural neighbourhood. The Market is an older neighbourhood and one of the city's most well-known. In November 2006, it was designated a National Historic Site of Canada.
Robert Fulford wrote in 1999 that "Kensington today is as much a legend as a district. The (partly) outdoor market has probably been photographed more often than any other site in Toronto."
Kensington Market approximate borders are College St. on the north, Spadina Ave. on the east, Dundas St. W. to the south, and Bathurst St. to the west.
Most of the neighbourhood's eclectic shops, cafes, and other attractions are located along Augusta Ave. and neighbouring Nassau St., Baldwin St., and Kensington Ave.
In addition, to the Market, the neighbourhood features many historic Victorian homes, the Toronto District School Board operates Kensington Community School and at Dundas St. W. and Bathurst St., Toronto Western Hospital is located.
