There is no need for an "attraction" downtown to make people go.It IS the people and streetlife that is the attraction for me anyway.

As a kid i used to go up and down Younge street all day in and out of shops with all the hustle and bustle of panhandlers, street artists, piss artists, regular folk just getting from here to there...I loved it.The Eaton Centre( Big Box original downtown concept) was right across the street and I rarely went in.Boring as hell.I had Sherway Gardens in Etobicoke if I needed a shopping mall.

Maybe there are just downtown people who like the downtown warts and all( Freakshows?) and those in the outlying suburban areas who just like the 2.5 story/ 45 ft lot home with 4 car driveway and eat at Kelseys/Outback/Kelseys Outback/ (repeat over and over as necessary until sick).

There only needs to be a mix of decent restaurants, entertainment( not a cineplex 24) cafes, bars and pubs( not concentrated like Hess)and some Piazzas and parks.

I have had enough of suburban life masel.
