The Yorkville Rock was purchased for $1500, from a Gravenhurst-area farmer. It was cut into 120 pieces, each one carefully marked for reassembly, and shipped to the Big Smoke on flatbed trucks. The granite rock was placed on a star-shaped, concrete platform, atop the Bloor-Danforth subway tunnel, on the edge of posh Yorkville.
Winter and summer, the Rock is one of TORONTO’s favourite hangouts. There’s an adjacent subway station, Louis Vuitton around the corner, and all the glitz of Yorkville across the street. Subway stop – BAY
