    Im pretty sure GenerationLee is substituting the word ghetto for detroit... So in essence he wrote "ghetto cell phone shots." That being said downtown detroit is supposed to be changing with a new basketball stadium downtown... but I do think ghetto when I think of detroit.

    True story... We were in line to cross the border. The car next to us had two hooligans in it. They kept tapping/hitting the car in front of them. The person in front who was being hit was an old person. My mother, a suburban white lady, roles down the window and shouts to the boys "didn't your moms teach you to respect your elders?" The boys respond "Don't worry ma'am its a Ford, it's built to last."

    Nope, I mean Detroit as a substitute to bad. It's an interesting interpretation of using the cities name for a denomination. I've heard one call something Detroit before, and I find it to be of an interesting idea to say.

    Pretty much, when I said "Detroit cell phone shots" I meant that my phone is becoming less capable as a camera or of anything, I wasn't saying that Y&E, the neighbourhood I grew up in, is becoming Detroit. Heck, Y&E, and Toronto in general is some kind of polar opposite of Detroit at this point. Detroit having 60 years of decline and Toronto having considerable growth since WWII.

    EDIT: I'm not bashing all parts of Detroit, I have heard that their are nice parts of Detroit, wherever they exist. I've also heard Detroit is slowly rebounding with a new arts scene, though the issue with crime and drugs and abandoned districts of the city is a huge issue for any Detroitian.

    They need to do a better job of cleaning their forms.

    Stupid question but why did they build the south facing 'overhang' in concrete with exception of the southwest corner, which they then immediately filled in that notch with steel? Thx.

    I was in the area, rooftop was VERY* busy with 4 people, most I've ever seen in fact (Not joking, its pretty empty a lot of the time, except this year it will be busier....for sure). They more or less looked at me take this update:

    Bonus cell shot showing the view from Eglinton. A classic view of the Rio-Can towers that'll soon be blocked by the condo tower:
