We went up 10 Dundas East (retail and cinema complex) on the northeast corner of the Square where Future Shop (Best Buy of the USA) is an anchor store. From a corner store on the 3rd floor we took some pictures of the Square. It was Friday afternoon, but the Square wasn't as crowded as it is normally.

Some claim that the intersection is the busiest in Canada, with over 56 million people passing through annually. It is sometimes nicknamed Toronto's Times Square, as development is cited as modelling New York's Times Square, Tokyo's Shibuya district, and London's Piccadilly Circus. To ease traffic, a pedestrian scramble has been installed.[
