My impression of Richmond and Adelaide in Toronto is that they are pedestrian dead-zones in an otherwise relatively vibrant pedestrian-friendly downtown. In fact I always used Richmond and Adelaide as examples for people who know Toronto about the vibrancy-stifling and pedestrian repelling effects of one-way streets through a downtown (to illustrate how traffic on King, Main and Cannon repel pedestrian traffic). Along Richmond and Adelaide it seems to me that any vibrancy and pedestrian activity comes where calmer two-way streets intersect them.
