Scarborough YMCA - March 19, 2006
2 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Close to TTC Subway station as well as bus station. Makes it rather convenient. Has a large parking lot as well adjacent to STC's main parking lot (infront of the movie house).

Staff leave you be unless you ask for help, where they are usually helpful.

There are numerous program offerings here including tai-chi, yoga, karete, volleyball, swimming, etc. It's not as big as I would have like but for a fitness centre, it's adequete enough to serve the community's needs.

I recommend this place.

Woodside Square Library - March 18, 2006
2 out of 5 people found this review helpful. The collection of books in this library is rather small but considering it is a community-based library I can understand. You're better off going to the nearest neighbourhood library near Alton Towers (Goldhawk library).

I find the library very cramped, and small. Though kudos to them with regards to their holding system which allows me to borrow books from other libraries and have it delivered right to Woodside Square Library.

There's a huge crowd after 3 because of the neighbouring schools (Albert Campbell, Our Lady of Grace, Libermann) so it's awfully tough to get seats. The computers as well are occupied with small children (oftentimes playing online games, which gets frustrating for people looking to do some work).

I do not recommend this place.

The Second City Training Centre - March 18, 2006
2 out of 5 people found this review helpful. Superb. Possibly the best improv/drama training centre in Toronto.

The space is small enough for it to be a cozy setting for its students, restricting students from 'hiding' or getting lost in a huge spacious room. However, it's big enough to move around and play around in the space.

The teachers are amazing. They know how to criticize you while still giving you ample praises. They are very well-trained and know how to get the best out of each student. Most if not all of the teachers have appeared in numerous improv/comedic shows in Canada. My teacher guest-starred in the Royal Canadian Air Farce as well has been working as a stand-up comedian.

Working with people who've been in the industry for a while (10+ years), giving you advice and instruction is all that you can ask for in a drama/improv training school.

This school really pushed me outside of my comfort level and I'm really greatful I found this place.

I recommend this place.

Downtown Camera - March 18, 2006
6 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Better selection in comparison to Henry's (which is right next door). Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Good place as well to process slide film.

Any photo enthusiast should +fav this place because it's a shop you know you'll keep on visiting.

I recommend this place.
