Cherry Street - Shortly before Condominium invasion

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Lower Cherry Street. This is probably the last time to see these buildings isolated, before the condos start to grow behind them. Only 3 of these old buildings were saved on this stretch of Cherry Street. I used to love this part of town, but know the charm is gone forever!

This part of town (Cork Town) has still some areas, which are preserved only because public housing was build nearby - it is a poor people area, not really dangerous, but developers were avoiding it - until now! Cherry Street had probably orchard, long time ago! it ends on a nice beach!

For what it is worth I have visited the new park, that masks the flood control embankment. It is beautiful, with ponds, gardens, and a kid's recreation zone near the washrooms. It waill probably have a dog zone too.

I did not go to the park yet, i guess it may be similar to Woodbine park. It will take 40 years to get a bit of character....
