Sidewalk emerges at Yonge & Dundas

Seeing is Believing: the Blue Scaffolding is Gone

As Toronto Life 'Square' continues to mutate into the gawdy little jewel it intends to be, the day has finally come for the blue scaffolding/tunnel along the sidewalk at Yonge & Dundas to be torn down.

The news will come as a bit of a shock to many a Ryerson alumni like myself who never thought they'd see the day.

When I started at Ryerson some 7 years ago, I spent every morning hipchecking my way through the pot-holed and leaky tunnel that already seemed like it had been there forever. Like that monotonous man across the street preaching about our imminent damnation, it had simply grown into a permanent fixture.

Now, years later, I emerged from Dundas Station to find a pale sidewalk basking in the sunlight it hasn't known for years. My reaction? Shock, awe, and a photo for the history books.
