Neighborhood Watch: Trinity Bellwoods. ⇒

    6 November 2006, mid-morning

"The Trinity Bellwoods neighborhood is sadly starting to feel the strain of the chain boutiques and large stores pushing westward from the Queen/Spadina throng and, within the past few years, past even Bathurst. With this gentrification comes improvements in the streets and store facades plus a heightened sense of security, but at what cost? I have already seen many of the truly unique independent shops and galleries buckle under soaring rent costs and move westward into the more affordable Parkdale. As Toronto's west side continues to grow and evolve, I sincerely hope my neighborhood can find a way to do so gracefully." Oh the irony? My comments are at the bottom of the post, with the author's thoughtful response following.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
