The downtown-west hood of "West-Queen-West" which runs along Queen West from Bathurst Street to Gladstone Avenue has become known as an artsy design area, since the creative types moved in and made it their home. The strip has been reinvented with over 300 cutting-edge galleries, design houses, cool restaurants, eclectic shops and the art themed boutique hotels The Gladstone and Drake. Walking this area and taking in the local flavours and sites from the retro cafes, to the small boutiques is an exciting experience to tempt your senses. A stroll along Queen Street can fill your day from your morning coffee and breakfast, gallery hopping, picking up some veggies and fruit from the market, pausing for lunch at a bistro, to dinner at any number of local hot-spot eateries then ending with entertainment at the Gladstone or Drake Hotels. This New York styled hood is why those choosing to live in one of the local Condo or loft buildings are being drawn here for its vitality, neighbourhood feel and close proximity to downtown Toronto. Transportation is a breeze coming or leaving the city. Trinity Bellwoods Park is a community within itself and draws the local residents to a magical green space to enjoy within their hood.
