two months' notice

After two years spent complaining about our neighbourhood, Geoff and I are finally handing in our notice & embarking on a new apartment search. We love the apartment, we love the ravines nearby and all the trees... but then we'll take a walk in another neighbourhood and bump into at least two of our friends. When we head down the subway stairs, we have heavy hearts.

So, and I know this is a longshot, if you happen to live in Toronto and hear anything about a one bedroom apartment somewhere within the parameters of Dupont-Queen, Spadina-Brock, pretty please let me know! It's for May 1.

I am dreaming of being able to ride my bike all over my new neighbourhood, without having to get off and walk my heavy, one-speed, ancient bike up that dang hill on Avenue Road.

A yard with room for a teepee would be heaven! Image from The Selby.

  2. I hate that hill too. But I work uptown, so it's a good neighbourhood for me. Oh to work from home, and that home to be that apartment I was hung up on (and still obviously am!)

  5. Thanks, everyone!

    Becky: the last few apartments we lived in were at Dupont and Spadina, or College and Harbord, or Dovercourt and Bloor -- as much as I love Roncesvalles and Parkdale, sometimes I forget to consider areas to the southwest! For me, the best of Toronto is a cherry tree in the backyard of a house on Gilbert Avenue.
