It's a building...there is nothing inside of note (it's a city hall)...so walk past, take a picture and move on...I would not make this a destination all by itself.

New city hall aka Nathan Phillips Square is worth a visit because of its interesting architecture (Mies van der Rho), the new and now famous TORONTO sign (great for visitors photos), street truck cuisine, fountains, music and events. In winter rent ice skates and enjoy the outdoor rink where the summer fountain changes function. While there check out the magnificent... More

This complex is an area that serves both government and public purposes. The government works in a beautiful curved high-rise office building and lower circular structure that sits above a lower plaza used for public events including art shows, jazz festivals and many other activities. It shows some wear but work has been going on for the past few years... More

Whenever you think of Toronto both the CN Tower comes to mind as does the New City Hall. Although its hardly new as it was built in the 1960s! It has quite an individual look and I have not see anything quite like it anywhere else. Unlike the Old City Hall you can go inside this building and a self... More

The New City Hall at 100 Queen Street West at Bay Street is a building really worth seeing. Designed by Finnish architect Viejo Revell, this is such a neat building, it is a really great photo stop!

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
