Corso Italia

Last week I showed you a banner for Regal Heights found on St Clair Ave and this week I am showing one for the Corso Italia which is also found on St Clair and is the second Italian neighbourhood in Toronto after Little Italy on College St. The area is famous for its many cafes, bakeries, clothing shops (especially bridal shops) and its gelaterias.

Is the gelato good in this area? You reminded me of the time I spent working in St. Louis. They had a huge Italian neighborhood with loads of restaurants and bakeries.

Nice to know Italian culture has a place in Toronto. Interesting about the many bridal shops.

Banners highlight the neighborhoods and the look very nice. Bakeries sound good and of course, Italian food, my favorite.

That building to the left catches my eye.

Interesting. I looked this up about D.C.: :Those early Italian immigrants to DC never really established a true Little Italy of their own. Instead, they mostly settled in two residential neighborhoods that vanished long ago — Swampoodle, near the U.S. Capitol and Union Station, and the Judiciary Square area."

That is St Clare's Roman Catholic Church on the left!

Cafes, bakeries and gelaterias all sound wonderful to me!

I love it when City neighborhoods show their pride ... and it is helpful for visitors finding their way around and picking up a little history. Nice post, but now I wish a had a cup of gelato.

Oooohhhhh, I would like that. It sounds like Franklin Avenue in Hartford.
