I find the resurgence of these neighbourhoods pretty inspiring. Mostly because of the speed and how it happens almost in spite of the opinion/perceptions/ efforts of many citizens and elected officials. Obviously there are many to be commended for their efforts, but overcoming the naysaying is a feat unto itself.

The strip that I'm really hoping experiences a resurgence is the stretch around the Royal Cannaught. I've heard this is being turned into a residence/ hotel hybrid -- I've lost track of where that soap opera is at currently...I'm sure most here would know more than me -- but I could see an instantaneous revival of the blight that I see in that stretch. Which, could very well be the biggest eyesore of the city.

Otherwise, as I've stated before, I'm always surprised (based on what popular belief seems to be) at how active our downtown actually is. Looking forward to spending more time there.
