"The financial core of the city..." Financial District & Underground City Tip by citygirl29

The financial core of the city ('Bay Street', but it includes more than Bay Street) might not be world-famous, but it is interesting. The former Toronto Stock Exchange building on Bay Street is a beautiful piece of Art Deco architecture and is now home of the Design Exchange. The TD towers--the original two, at least--are classic Mies Van der Rohe. And the Royal Bank Tower really does have gold windows. The vista created by Union Station and the main Post Office is stunning (across from the Royal York Hotel, which used to be the tallest building in the Commonwealth).
