Yonge & St. Clair

The very "uptown" Yonge and St. Clair intersection would be the envy of any small Canadian city with it's mix of high rise office, apartment and condominium towers coupled with busy street life and a generous mix of retail. Though a walk along either Yonge or St. Clair is very "big city," nearby ravines provide a bucolic escape that make the city seem far away. The Rosehill Reservoir Park has an impressive series of fountains and brooks, including a most space-aged atomic sculpture in the centre. Overlooking the city from the top of an escarpment, the affluent neighbourhood surrounding Yonge and St. Clair has some of the best panoramic views in Toronto.
