TORONTO NEVER STOPS BUILDING – THESE PROJECTS BORDER DOWNTOWN’S RAILWAY LINES

The Railway Lands are a great neighbourhood to wander around in. Other than high rises, you can watch the trains coming and going from Union Station.  <The GO Trains below are parked.> There’s parkland, restaurants, public art – and Spadina Avenue and Bathurst Street aren’t far away.This bridge across the railway lines connects the south side with the north, and from there Draper Street, a Heritage Conservation District.This little brick street has survived overall industrialization of the King-Spadina neighbourhood.The street is named after William Henry Draper (1801-77).  He was a lawyer and a politician, and later was appointed Chief Justice of Post-Confederation Ontario in 1869.
