Когда Торонто был....

сплошной парковкой.

БлогТоронто опубликовал серию фотографий 80-х годов. На мой взгляд, очень впечатляет.
Я увидела город в середине 90-х. И тогда он уже сильно отличался от этих фотографий. Многие "пустоты были застроены офисными зданиями. это то что строили в  то время.

И сейчас в городе довольно много паркингов, но их стало гораздо меньше за время последнего строительного бума после 2000 года, зато появилось много кондоминимумов . Это то, что строят сейчас))))))
