The Junction NY Times

The NY Times Shows The Junction Some Love

While Toronto Tourism makes no effort to promote the Junction on its web site, it's good to see an influential publication south of the border expose one of Toronto's most up-and-coming neighbourhoods to potential tourists.

Yesterday, the New York Times published yet another one of their great travel articles on a Toronto neighbourhood that doesn't get much play from the powers that be who promote our city. Titled Skid Row to Hip in Toronto, the article isn't a comprehensive look at the area, missing favourite spots like Crema Coffee, Smash and The Beet to name a few. Here are the ones they did mention:

Pandemonium (rumoured to be moving locations)
Delight Chocolate
Rawlicious
Cool Hand of a Girl
Margret

Which is to say that it's a good start and exactly the sort of story the city should be trying to get out instead of the crap about Ontario Place and Casa Loma. For those not yet familiar with the neighbourhood, don't forget to pick up one of our recently published Junction maps.
