Well i've written about this in the past to find out who might own this lot and this less than 1/2 constructed building that is fast becoming an eyesore in the neighborhoud.

I recently read that elsewhere in the city, there was a similar construction site that went unattended for sometime and the neighbours complained (it was summer and the construction hole was quickly filling with water). Water is not the problem it's the mosquito's and other debris that was also collecting in this… Continue

New Pizza joint coming soon?

Hey there,

I noticed that something might finally be happening in the Eastend Design Centre where the Eastender sign has been posted in the window for what seems like a year!?! Right beside the Red Rocket Coffee Shop there is a new sign that says a wood fire pizza restaurant will be opening soon. Let's hope it's a quality establishment...

The Soft Mechanic: when anatomy and art intersect

This weekend was a visual feast of local arts and crafts at the annual City of Craft event, held this year at the lovely Theatre Centre. A quick walk along Queen West yielded some unexpected riches of the anatomical/art variety. Riffing off my last post about the giant colon and the awesomeness of unusual anatomical models as educational tools, how could I not feature the fine specimen below?…

Just spent the afternoon at Bonjour Brioche (technically Riverside, I realise), and have fallen in love with quiche and baguette. Deadly combination. And where else in the world could you get a job offer whilst sipping latte?

Aside from the horrendous minus 10 degrees, and the fact that my bathroom window refuses to close the whole way (makes for an agressive experience first thing in the morning, I can tell you), I am loving the holidays in Leslieville.

Now if I could only get my… Continue

Why put your young child in a Creative Movement class?

Creative Movement is unique to all other physical activities because it uses nonfuntional movement to invite each child to explore their own personal expressions. Nonfunctional simply means moving for the sake of moving, as opposed to kicking a ball, reaching for something, etc.

Through dance play, children discover new aspects of their bodies, minds, language, thoughts, and imagination while also becoming aware of elements of dance including rhythm, tempo, space, direction, size,… Continue

My fingers did that!?!

When I was a child every Christmas brought forth a beautifully wrapped gift at the back of the tree that held my mom's hope that I would discover a love of crafts. The gifts ranged from hook rug kits to weaving machines, crochet hooks and macrame books. I never showed an interest (or the patience) to excel at any of the Arts and Crafts she tried to lure me with. My mother gave up when I was around 16.

Then Purple Purl moved into the neighbourhood and I started toying with the idea of… Continue

‘Resident Evil’ producer warns of scary-looking blasts east of downtown tonight [National Post]

A film crew is warning Torontonians it will set off a series of controlled explosions east of downtown tonight that will look much like a real disaster.

“The explosions will be about 25 feet high and 30 feet wide,” said Don Carmody, a producer on Resident Evil: Afterlife. “They’re over quickly, like what you’d expect from gasoline.”

From 6:30 p.m until 9 p.m, the crew will film the blasts in the gravel parking lot of the Cinespace Studios on Booth Avenue, near Queen Street… Continue

Growing up a Leslievillian

My parents purchased a townhouse in the Marigold Gardens complex from the builder back in 1978, long before the neighbourhood was reconnected with it's past and embraced the name "Leslieville". It was a different neighbourhood in those days and my parents embraced it. They wanted to ensure their daughter grew up to be unbiased and respectful of all individuals regardless of background or household income. It was tough at times, I was embarassed when I had friends visit and we had to hop over… Continue

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

Posted by Nolin (Admin) on February 3, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
