Enjoy the artistry of young Toronto Graffiti artists, who have put their art on display for walk-through audiences, who are always taking pics of their friends and lovers in front of the wildly coloured paintings. Need a new album cover? Place to go.

A cool way to spend half an hour. Just walk down the alley and make sure to look both ways (in front and behind you) since you might miss very cool graffitis behind you. There's a lot of very cool photo spots that you might...More
