Photographer's Note

This is the view from to the west from the lounge of the Chairman of the TD Bank on the 54th floor of the TD Centre. I waited one hour in line to get in to this place during this years Door Open event, but it was worth it, the view is spectacular from here. This picture shows a view of the heart of the entertainment district of Toronto. The three green buildings at the centre are municipal offices called the Metro Hall. In front of the Metro Hall the park is called Pecaut Square, which during Toronto annual Luminato Festival is the place for free outdoor programming as well as nightly shows. The cone shaped partly covered buildings at the bottom of the picture is the Roy Thomson Hall, the home of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Toronto Mendelssohn Choir. On the left of the picture the building with the red top is the Canadian Broadcasting Centre, in it the Glenn Gould Studio is a live music venue. On the right side of the picture the 46-storey tower, called Festival Tower condominium sits on top of the TIFF Bell Lightbox, housing 5 movie theatres, it is the home of Toronto International Film festival. Below the Festival Tower the building with flat white roof is the Princess of Wales Theatre, which was built for the Toronto run of Miss Saigon, with a stage large enough to accommodate the landing of the helicopter in that production. Further down of the right side visible the entrance to the small Royal Alexandra Theatre, built in 1907, the the oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in North America.
