Cornerspotted: It's Greektown at Broadview and Danforth Ave.

Yesterday, we asked you to look at this historical city photo and guess the intersection. Many of you guessed correctly that the 1912 photo was taken at the corner of Broadview and Danforth Avenue. The intersection actually looks quite similar minus the Pizza Pizza and street car tracks, with the Broadview subway station close by. The area is known for its delicious Greek food, outdoor patios and summer festivals like the exceptionally crowded (but fun) Taste of the Danforth. For some viewing fun, check out more historic photos of Toronto's Greektown.
