Graffiti Alley (Rush Lane)

 

Rush Lane, a.k.a. Graffiti Alley, is home to some of Toronto’s most colourful and interesting street art.

The entrance to Rush Lane can be found just off Queen Street West, right behind a fantastic store called Outer Layer  at 577 Queen W.

Rush Lane/Graffiti Alley runs for over a kilometre east-west, all the way from Portland to Spadina.
