The Queen Car - A Story


So, the queen streetcar has been named as one of the top city rides. As one who has ridden the western portion of the line for over 20 years I can agree. I have also taken the rides in San Francisco, Berlin and Lisbon. The atmosphere on the car on a late Saturday night is always entertaining. In fact, the patrons are as eclectic as the buildings the car passes. One of my fondest memories is when I got the driver to run a red light for me at 3am so I could get home faster. The ride does offer a good mix of Toronto architecture. From some of the modernist apartment blocks and veteran housing in Mimico to the Victorian storefronts in Parkdale there is a good timeline of a developing Toronto.
