Real Geography vs. Toronto Geography

Okay, since recently moving, I often think about how much I love living in close proximity to both Little Italy and the Portugal Village.  Both Italians and the Portuguese are warm, friendly neighbours and you can always count on seeing a great lean or somebody hosing down the sidewalk.  Sure enough, just as I’m thinking this, I look out the window of my sunroom and the woman next door is diligently soaking the concrete.


God, I love this part of town.  Why aren’t Italy and Portugal beside each other in the real world?

    I used to live in Toronto, in and around portugal village – the distinctive thing for me is the replacement of rotting wooden banisters and railings around porches with swirly black metal ones – very visible in your picture!

    Have you ever seen the Greek palace on Shaw Street, just south of Dupont, and just north of the row of drunken houses falling into a subterranean river…? Best house in Toronto…
