On street level St. Patrick intersects
University Avenue and Dundas Street (west of Yonge). Other than Yonge street, University Avenue is another north/south alternative in downtown . It is probably one of the more noble and picturesque streets in Toronto . For one thing the street is unusually wide, covering an expanse of 6 lanes. A median down the centre of the avenue contains various statues, water fountains, shrubbery and seasonal flowers. Toronto
It runs from Union Station (
Front Street) up until College street where it forks into . Surprisingly, despite the name, there are no Universities on Queens Park University Avenue. There are however several corporate offices and government buildings. Hospital Row is closer to the Osgoode ( College Park) subway station, however Mount Sinai hospital is directly outside the St. Patrick station.
