Toronto City Hall

Toronto City Hall, originally uploaded by sgr_do_or_die.

This is Toronto city hall, also known as New Toronto city hall. I don't really like it much. It's one of those modern, modern buidings that tries too hard. It looks cold and standoffish when I think a lot of Toronto's charm is the older brick and stone buildings from a century ago. It looks cold to me.

In the summer there is a farmer's market held here and in winter, as you can see in the photo, there is ice skating. Sometimes bands play there on temporary stages. It reminds me a lot of Justin Herman plaza in San Francisco.
