Then and Now for April 27.
Then. King and Jarvis NE corner. 1990-ish.
Now. October 2011.

What strikes me most, in addition to the new builds, is the improvement that has been made to the red brick commercial row by removing surface paint and allowing the architecture to express itself ( though the new banners could be eliminated, perhaps ... ). It's great to see this process of recovery taking place all over town now.
I think the old picture is more 1990-ish than 1980-ish; the row's already been restored by then (but the surrounding condo not yet built)

Yeah, not. Hmm, urbantoronto has no strikethrough characters. So we can't just correct our mistakes, we must erase their history, Orwell fashion.

Heya, it's the weekend, and not soon enough.
The City of New York has put up their official photo website but good luck getting in, the traffic is horrendous. I haven't been able to myself. Here's the link anyways:
The UK's Daily Mail has put up a selection. Veddy sorry I couldn't say it was The Times... Here's a link as a sort of consolation to you all: [Be careful, there are a couple of gruesome crime scene photos, but's that Gotham for you.]
One "bad old days" vestige still extant in the "former" photo is the General Welding School...
