Bloor Street, Toronto
Bloor Street West in Toronto is lined with independent retail businesses for much of its length. After living near in the neighborhood of Bloor and Bathurst for ten years, I noticed that the composition of the stores on the street was changing, and, in 1995, starting conducting an annual survey of the stretch between Spadina Avenue and Christie Street to document the changes. On this page, you can explore the data I have collected. Other pages describe the nature of the data and discuss some features of the data.
