Fort York of Toronto – Intersection of Past and Future

Historic museum Fort York is a wonderful restoration and preservation of early military complex, which protected entrance to Toronto Harbour and town of York and played critical part in the War 1812-1814 with the USA. Beside the Fort York compound, there are grounds of Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) that illustrate progress of Canada and Toronto from the end of 19th century to present in different spheres of economy, culture and sports. Just across the rails from CNE lies a part of city called Liberty Village, which until 1970s was an important industrial area. Today it is one of the fast growing residential neighbourhoods with comfortable new condos smartly placed among old factory buildings, converted into trendy shops, restaurants and galleries.
