    loud motorcycles

    Lost Neighbourhood: Blondin Avenue

    Hello, I live at Jane / Wilson and I have lived here since 1988 (I'm 29). I really enjoyed your story about growing up in the area as I can picture everything you mentioned. I barely remember the plaza at the corner of Weston / Walsh / Albion but I know it existed; the orange / black pizza...
