Incredible. I've seen a few similar videos of NYC and San Francisco, seemingly streetcar ride-alongs, but never for Toronto. I wonder if any exist, it would be cool to see.

Where natural and built environments collide.
Where have all the condos gone?

I like this photo as it shows the old surface hydro corridor that used to run through the south core. It's now buried between the Kingsway and Sherbourne.

Here's a photo of it running through the old "South Parkdale".

Were the first couple of photos meant to focus upon Jarvis's reversible centre lane (which might have been new at the time)?
