Contributor Tony Makepeace is taking us for some spins around our city with his fantastic VR panoramas. You can look up, down, side to side, in and out—pretty much every direction but back at yourself, which would be kind of creepy. Say hello to Panoramaist: the Toronto shoe-gazer’s worst enemy.
The city is still suffering from its Nuit Blanche hangover, and we here at Torontoist are no exception. Later on, we’ll bring you some amazing photographs and our coverage of the night, but in the meantime, we bring you a trip inside the “Ghost Station.” Thousands of people overwhelmed the delicate Yorkville streets and waited in ridiculous line-ups to see Lower Bay station, home to Kristen Roos and his sound installation on Saturday. Tony Makepeace was one of them, and he brings us a rare 360 degree view of a packed Lower Bay.
