Fort York


Fort York, located just North of the Gardiner Expressway between Bathurst and Strachan, is probably our most famous fort.  I remember first learning about Fort York in primary school during lessons about The War of 1812.  Those damn Yankees overran the place during The Battle of York in 1813 but later that year we got her back and held off the Americans in 1814.

In addition to supplying Toronto students with a good field trip destination, Fort York is gaining quite the reputation as a splendid concert location.  Tomorrow, I'll be seeing my first show at Historic Fort York where The Tragically Hip are playing a couple of shows.  It's my 9th Hip show and I'll post a thorough review of both the band and venue Sunday morning.

Tragically Hip playlist selected... commence catalogue shuffle.
