A Hippie Village No More
A walk through the Yorkville Village neighbourhood recently certainly drove home to me how times have changed. In the 1960s this was home to many coffee houses and funky stores and was the heart of the hippie movement in Toronto. People like Joni Mitchell and Neil Young lived and sang here and you could always find fun of some kind along the street . Today most of the old buildings are gone and gentrification has totally changed the area. It was nice to see this old cottage surviving and I did enjoy the wonderful red which is fitting for it is a Christian Louboutin store now. Chanel is across the street.
