Ah, the Hart Shoe factory, I know thee well. last year from May to mid October I worked security in that building. You would be amazed as to what people do along York Street at 3 in the morning when they think nobody is looking. That job (among starting a business and going to school) also caused me to go slightly crazy around the end.

Where is the last photo taken? I don't recognise it at all. I also didn't know there was such a beautiful sunset today. I need to get out more.

little ukraine: these are great

I love the Hart Shoe factory building. It's makes the walk down York so much more interesting, if only because it stands out like a sore thumb undergoing recovery.
Starting a business + school + night job would shake anyone out of sanity's comfort zone, i would imagine. How did that work out?

The last photo was taken (a few days ago, actually) from what I call the bridge that leads nowhere. I don't know its proper name-- the turquoise one near the library.

And thanks, little ukraine-- my attempts are not in vain if someone else can enjoy/appreciate them.

It didn't work out so well, I would finish work at 3 am and then have to get up at 8am to go to school 3 days a week. All my free time was spent doing renovations and getting everything in order to start the Underground Cafe. Everything worked out in the end, I wasn't needed anymore at the factory in October which was good because I had enough money saved up to last me a few months and my sanity was just at the tipping point. I was having panic attacks for no reason, I was tired all the time, nervous and irritable. It wasn't a fun time but I loved that job!

The little bridge is often affectionally refered to as the Stairway to Devon (Devon being the neighbourhood directly across the river from the bridge if it could reach).

That shoe factory scares me whenever I walk past it...

I also never knew the old rail yard site was full of flowers/weeds...
