The bridge is open–and it’s good

Metrolinx opened the John Street Bridge just in time for the last day of the market. I confess, I had thought the bridge to be rather ugly from afar: it seemed engineered for safety and accessibility, which, if not inimical to beauty, are certainly challenges to it. I was wrong.

The bridge is quite nice!

I had thought that there was rather too much fencing  Up close, though, it 2016-10-29-12-06-42 works: the fencing is attractive stainless wire. It looks great.

The steps are actually kind of fun; on the John Street side, they are steeply pitched. My kids loved it, and they were actually a bit scared. The auditorium staircase, with much larger steps, is pretty great too.2016-10-29-12-09-512016-10-29-12-07-45
