the hipsters are coming...

An old article in Eye Weekly predicting the hipster influx in the Bloor/Ossington/Dufferin hood....a good read...

I remember, fresh out of university, trying to open a gallery with some friends in a shoddy storefront apartment at 1200 Bloor, just west of Dufferin. We had little to no street traffic and spent most of the time mingling with crack heads, psychics and old Muslim & Portuguese men. A lot can change in 4 years.
