The idea is nice, a couple of alley ways laced with graffiti, but in reality I didn’t think it was as amazing as it was made out to be. Don’t get me wrong it’s certainly interesting, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to...More

We walked around and saw some very nice graffiti but stopped at McDonalds to use the washroom Drug deals going on and felt very uncomfortable. Could have skipped this place, no problem, but saw it anyway. Kind of disappointed.

So the graffiti is pretty cool. It spans for 3 blocks worth of buildings. It’s an alley so it’s a little funky and full of trash. It’s honestly the area on queen street that really makes it worth seeing. I walked up from the financial...More

There are many graffiti locations in Toronto and Graffiti Alley is the focal point. Worthwhile to walk around yo feel the part of the multi culture here.

Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's
neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums,
clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the
funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,

No, I personally would not consider this a romantic spot, it is truly an alley and there is garbage and refuse all around. To avoid crowds I would suggest getting there first thing in the morning.

It is a c space. I would say it would be risky but it can be an inappropriate place for that.
