Gotta agree with you, Chris. Lots more green spaces, lots fewer caverns of
buildings. If you want to walk around at 1:00 in the morning downtown,
there are lots of people on the sidewalks on Yonge (the main street). It
feels safe, and lots of people live downtown, so it doesn't turn into a
ghost town at 6:00 pm.
But it doesn't run like clockwork. There's a lot of hard work constantly
going into keeping it a good place to live and work.
