I've lived in this area for nearly 30 years. Yes, Yonge Street is gritty but this photograph is misleading. It has been processed to make the buildings look like dirty (even though some of them do, thanks to greedy, negligent owners with zero sense of civic pride). The brick and signs on these buildings look better than shown here - even the Corner's Court building (background, centre) doesn't look anything like that. It is a cool shot, but not accurate.
