Toronto Mike



I just learned Toronto is Amsterdam's twin city.  I had no idea...

There's little in Amsterdam to commemorate this bond, but I did walk across the Torontobrug earlier today.  The Torontobrug (Bridge No. 350) is a link across the Amstel river between Amsteldijk and Weesperzijde.  It has this plaque that references David Crombie, our mayor in 1974.


Fun fact: Toronto has a bridge called the Amsterdam Bridge with a similar plaque. The Amsterdam Bridge is a cable footbridge that crosses over the Simcoe Street Slip from York Quay to Rees Street Slip.
