Toronto's most unique overused nickname is surely Hogtown (or, perhaps, "T.O.") For a city that's conspicuously pig-free, it's a strange title to bear in the age of condominiums and skyscrapers, but one with an interesting history.
Here's the backstory on Toronto's most famous nicknames.
Prior to last night, I had never seen Toronto's laneways mapped. This, in fact, had been a something that I've wanted to investigate for a while, but there's no need. Thanks to a late night visit to Reddit TOMaps, a resource all urban nerds should visit once in a while, I've discovered that there are already multiple Toronto laneway mapping projects.
The news also means the days are numbered for one of the most ridiculous ferry rides in the world.
The tunnel, which will be the first permanent public link to the Toronto Islands, is due to feature four moving sidewalks along its 243.8-metre length. A bank of elevators on the mainland and a set of escalators on the airport side will move passengers the 30 metres from the tunnel to the surface.
