WHEN YONGE
AND YORKVILLE
WERE COOL

Fifty years ago, before boutiques and luxury hotels graced The Mink Mile, the intersection of Toronto’s music scene was near the Toronto Reference Library, where Yonge Street’s rock and R&B sounds met the bohemian folk of Yorkville. Stuart Henderson, author of ‘Making the Scene: Yorkville and Hip Toronto in the 1960s’, explores how Yorkville and Yonge became focal points of Toronto’s 60s scene through six songs that defined the era.
