blogTO Urban Maps


Some of you may have noticed these maps floating around various Toronto neighbourhoods. So, even though the secret may be out, we're ready to announce today the first edition of the blogTO urban maps.

For our first spring/summer edition, we've started with four maps, grouped into the following neighbourhoods:

* West Queen West and Liberty Village
* Little Italy and Dundas West
* Leslieville and Riverside
* Parkdale and Roncesvalles Village

All maps are free and distributed throughout each of the neighbourhoods at cafes, stores, restaurants, bars, fitness clubs and other locations.

Each map includes profiles of 80 or more great local spots grouped into categories like restaurants, bars and cafes, art galleries, fashion, furniture and design and beauty and health. 40 of the profiles on each map also come with full colour photos. And the whole thing is also integrated with the blogTO web site. So if you want to learn more about, say, Little Italy, you can go read about it in our new neighbourhood section.

We're also busy building out online listings and profiles of places that are located within each neighbourhood. If you think you'd like to help us write some profiles, definitely drop us a line.

We'll have more details on the urban maps soon and will be offering the option to ship a pack of four of them to those of you who might be planning an upcoming visit to Toronto.

Special thanks to Bronwyn Anderson for the design and Tanja and Zach for helping out with photos.
