    Lucky you.

    Thanks for the warning, I didn't know you weren't allowed to take pictures without permission.
    Very neat shot. The fact that it is devoid of people is particularly ... bizarre.

    Thanks everyone :)

    asadc, this is an abandoned station on the TTC, that's why we needed permission. The only time people are here is when the space is rented out to film productions and other events, like Nuit Blanche (there's a video I shot of the Nuit Blanche installation here).

    Indian nomad, the video was shot in May, you can see it here. Maybe I'll post it up here too.

    This would be a perfect setting for the zombie characters previously found on your stream...

    I saw this image of yours when I googled "abandoned tunnels of Toronto"... I really like taking pictures of underground world and especially abandoned, was wondering if you can share with me how you get there, did you get permission or what did you do? I would really appreciate it.

    Cheers,
    Roland

    We had permission to be down there so we could put this article together. The deputy Chair of the TTC was with us but the transit police still showed up minutes after we arrived because the CCTV cameras are active.

    The station is rented out for parties and events, like Nuit Blanche (some pics of that here), that's your best bet for checking it out.
