Overview

On the eastern entrance to this area of Toronto, on the Queen Street Bridge the text: THIS RIVER I STEP IN IS NOT THE RIVER I STAND IN. Stainless steel letters, 18 inches in height. At the intersection of Broadview and Queen Street: 19” high letters; four expressions about time; embedded in the sidewalk at four corners: TOO SOON FREE FROM TIME; TIME IS MONEY: MONEY IS TIME; BETTER LATE THAN NEVER; TIME=DISTANCE X VELOCITY. Beside the Jimmy Simpson Park are four stainless steel pennants, four declarations of time, a lyrical poem, one word per pole: COURSING, DISAPPEARING, TREMBLING, RETURNING.
