Toronto West Queen West street art

Vogue magazine recently listed Toronto's West Queen West as the second hippest neighbourhood in the world. Yes, it's hip and it has great street art.

I'm particularly smitten with Sanko's new mural. If you are looking for a wide selection of Japanese pottery and foodstuffs, this is the place to go.

I have no idea what this sign says, but I like it a lot.

I looked at that list and read a few of the descriptions. What is kind of funny is that what Vogue considers "hip" - mostly areas that have high-end stores - is, for most/many "hipsters" not what they're looking for. To me, it seems kind of like a guide for wealthy women worrying about being 'old fashioned.' Can't wait until they include Hamilton - hah!
