CABBAGETOWN, A TOP HERITAGE CONSERVATION DISTRICT, IS EASILY REACHED BY STREETCAR #506

CABBAGETOWN3           You haven’t seen TORONTO if you haven’t been to CABBAGETOWN. This walkable neighbourhood contains one of North America’s largest collections of Victorian-era housing, two of our city’s oldest cemeteries, an animal farm, parks and gardens.  It’s easily reachable by the eastbound #506 streetcar from COLLEGE subway station to Parliament Street. Then walk east.

  1. Despite the Preservation Association’s fantasy that everything is a Victorian brick with bay windows, you are rightly portraying the diversity of Cabbagetown contruction. Some of the weird juxtapositions might also be fun.

  2. As in most TORONTO neighbourhoods the juxtaposition of various kinds of architecture is the norm. You’re right – it is fun.
