I took this pic a few years ago during one of our Open Streets events when parts of Yonge St & Bloor St were closed to cars. These 4 shops were the typical storefronts found along some of the older parts of Yonge St south of Bloor. Many have now been torn down and the small independent businesses are disappearing but a look on google showed me that the Cuban cigar shop and the Persian restaurant are still there (at least a few months ago). The 2 buildings on the right have been newly painted and fixed up while the 2 on the left are still in need of a facelift.
