The New York Times declares Queen Street West a neighbourhood “like no other”

Yet again on Wednesday, the New York Times did that thing it periodically does, where, apropos of nothing, it publishes a travelogue of the exotic city of Toronto, located somewhere in the wilds beyond Western New York. The piece focuses on the shops of the Queen Street West and Ossington Avenue area, singling out worthy spots like StyleGarage and BYOB. “I saw a neighbourhood caught between the twin attractions of latte and graffiti,” observes the writer. Queen West certainly does have both those things.
