More hidden and quirky Toronto streets

This is a follow up to the "hidden" streets post of a week ago. As I suspected would happen, blogTO readers had lots of good recommendations of other Toronto streets off the beaten path. So many, in fact, that I'd be remiss not to put together a second post. I'll leave this one a little lighter on the words as I haven't actually been to a number of these ones, but do keep an eye out for a future post on areas of Toronto that have escaped Google Streetview.

Glasgow Street

Certainly a little rougher around the edges than those featured in the first post, Glasgow Street nevertheless has a certain hard-to-pin charm to it.

Bright Street

Bright Street should have really been in the first post, but I went with Ashby Place because of the cottage-thing. Still, this is a great example of 19th century row housing.

Wendigo Way

I wasn't aware of this one, but as a commenter explained on the last post, "It dead ends with a wooden stair case leading up to Bloor, and walking down the street, you'd have no clue you were in a major city."

Andrews Avenue

A bit rough around the edges, but there's an eclecticism here that's rather compelling.

Minto Street

Perhaps not so hidden, but there are some very cool and strange looking houses on this street.

Old Bridle Path

Can't believe I forgot this one on the first go around. I've been up and down this street many times -- another one where you feel like you've left the city.

Thanks to our readers for the suggestions!
