This is the historic center of Toronto, encompassing the former Town of York. The buildings in this neighborhood are red and yellow brick, reflecting the historic Georgian style of the old city. The best architectural example of the period is Toronto's Flatiron Building, one of the most photographed landmarks in the city, with the modern CN Tower rising behind it to the west. St. Lawrence is famous for its vibrant indoor market, where people shop for crafts, fresh meats, and produce. St. Lawrence is also a center for arts and theater, with the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts. Dinner and drink options abound here, with pubs and restaurants clustered along the Esplanade and Front Street.
