The Place, believe it or not, is here,
where Howard Park Ave and Lynd Ave meet Dundas West.

The new next to the old… the old square top, two storey brick stores built in rows that are still common in Toronto even though many are being replaced.

 

A row of two storey brick stores on Dundas West.  A convenience store, a laundromat, a cafe, and a boarded up store.  On the exterior walls of the convenience store are the words "Believe it or not, this is the place"
