    Nathan Phillips Square and City Hall

    On the north side of Queen Street, just west of Yonge, is a beautiful complex. I am reffering to Nathan Phillips Square. This beautiful square in the heart of the city, is home to many exhibitions, market sales, concerts, community gatherings etc. On one side of the square, is the Old, beautiful and quaint City Hall. It is now used purely for Court Rooms. Behind the Square, is the elegant New City Hall.

    Also included in the Off The Beaten Path section of my Toronto pages, you can also read about the City Coucil and Mayor's Office which form part of the square.

    I have also made a travelogue album on this square. It includes more information and people skating in the square. Please click here: Nathan Phillips Square

    Nathan Phillips Square is a big outdoor area where many concerts are held. If you're a Canadian, you'll probably remember a controversy that happened here years ago. A Canadian band, the Barenaked Ladies, were scheduled to perform live here for a New Year's Eve Celebration. At the last minute, the mayor of Toronto ruled that their name was sexist, and would not allow them to perform that night. Anyone who knows the Barenaked Ladies know that there name has no sexual connotations.
    This event actually helped launch the Barenaked Ladies into the mainstream.

    This picture was taken from my hotel room window. At a certain angle I could see this strange building, which I found out was City Hall. This picture was taken about 6 am.
