In this neighbourhood you'll find A Different Booklist bookstore & event space offering book lovers literary gems from “the south to the north, from Africa to the Caribbean, from Asia to South America.” We will start our journey here.

Did you know it was constructed in three parts: a bridge over Rosedale Ravine, an embankment along Bloor Street and a 1,620 foot bridge over the Don Valley linking Castle Frank with Danforth Avenue. It was completed after almost four years to an official ceremony on October 18, 1918.
