St James Cemetery dates back to Toronto's early days and looks it, holding many of Toronto's early and prominent citizens. Oddly juxtaposed across the street from a soviet-style 60s housing project, it stands in stark contrast to the modern era and is linked more to Cabbagetown to the south. All of the Victorian Toronto would've been bulldozed if the modernists had their way. The other (and larger) Mt Pleasant Cemetery may be better for running and cycling but the St James necropolis is a more authentic gothic graveyard experience and ranks up there with Paris, Havana and Glasgow in my opinion.
