The Spadina Subway Station is on the Yonge-University-Spadina Line and Bloor-Danforth Lines of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). The station is located near Bloor and Spadina Avenues. The Bloor Avenue (at Spadina) entrance has been open to the public since 1966, and the Spadina entrance (at Kendal) has been opened since 1978.
Much like the St. Clair Avenue West subway station, Spadina has a streetcar (#510) which runs through an underground tunnel that channels mid line on Spadina Avenue and brings passengers right onto a platform into the station.
On the street level, Spadina exits into what is known in Toronto as “the Annex”. As well as long term residents (average income of over $65,000) the Annex is home to many frat houses for university students as well as homes to the university faculty.
This busy corner comprises of The University of Toronto Schools, the Trinity-St. Paul United Church and the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre. Toronto is highly recognized for its multi-racial multi-cultural and all multi-religious character. This is what makes us so unique. Every segment of the city offers an abundance of food choices, musical venues, art and entertainment for everyone. It’s like visiting a little part of the world in every piece of the city.
We went to look for an memory card for my camera since I take so many photographs; I needed a card that would allow me to take more pictures. Not surprisingly, the Spadina/College area has long been a favourite to find bargains on all your computer needs. The street is basically known as the “Computer Strip” as there are over 20 stores virtually side-by-side from Spadina and College, all competing for your business, all offering discounts, computers, cameras, peripherals and technical support. If you need some time, take all the time you need. Open 7 days a week.
By the way, I got a 2GB card for $9 and had a buffet dinner for $10. A hop, skip and a jump and I’m back at Spadina subway with a full stomach and a full camera!
