Toronto's Queen Street West is named The World's Second Most Trendy Neighbourhood!
In its September issue, Vogue magazine listed Toronto's Queen Street West as the second most hip district in the world. From Mexico City to Tokyo.
Vogue's Nick Remson wrote that Queen Street West is a "veritable artery of indie pattisseries, homegrown labels and hidden from view galleries - Hallmarks of hipness, if they ever existed."
Vogue also mentions that the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, The Drake Hotel, The Gladstone Hotel and other hip spots are located in this neighbourhood.
The magazine also applauds Graffiti Alley where street art " is both legal and lauded." Also mentioned is that Toronto is now revelling in their recent rise in global popularity with the "globe-trotting tastemakers."
Tokyo's Shimokitazan placed number one on the spot. Other districts included on the list were Soderman in Stockholm, Tiong Bahru in Singapore, Centro in St. Paulo, Canal Saint-Marin in Paris, Bushwick in New York and Hackney in London.
