By no sense of reality (Anonymous)

I use to live on Queens Quay West briefly back in the late 80's and early 90's very few people actually drive to work, especially when you consider how many people actually lived there and with the largest transit hub in the city being a short 3-5 minute streetcar ride away it was stupid unless you had to drive. You could actually walk to the Billy Bishop Airport (Island Airport) in less than 20 minutes if you need to fly somewhere. A mere 10-15 minute walk east is the city's largest open fruit and vegetable market for most of the groceries. At the time there were 2 small Loblaws stores near as well. Both stores closed and was replaced by a Massive Superstore. You don't need to drive in that neighborhood, Queens Quay BLVD. was rarely full, only on weekends when people came down for the shopping and the antique furniture market was there ever grid lock or if too many tour buses came buy at once. There was a bike path back then to that was and obviously still is very crowded and very well used. You really don't need a car much down there! My favorite thing at to do at the time was to ride my bike (less than 5 minute ride) to the Ferry Docks with my girlfriend and go to the Islands for the day.
