First time visiting Toronto in 3 months, and started to really get familiar with the city. One of the reasons I moved to Buffalo was to be closer to Toronto and New York City. I really feel like Buffalo should be building more connections with such a large metropolis relatively close by. We arguably get more business from outside Buffalo that originates in the GTA, as opposed to New York City.
My only experience with the waterfront before this visit had been flying into Billy Bishop through Porter. It’s a very disjointed experience compared to Chicago where I use to live. That being said, it does have some interesting finds, and the harbour islands are an experience that Chicago didn’t offer. It allows you to far more removed from the experience of the city. Chicago did have the Wooded Island in Jackson Park and Northerly Island, but you were still felt like you were in the city. Being separated by actual water and requiring a ferry to reach them makes the harbour islands a much better place to relax.
