Yay! It's that time again for Toronto explorers! I noticed a bus-stop sign today and checked the website as soon as I could, and will you believe it???  THEY'RE OPENING THE DON JAIL THIS YEAR!! Wooo. I'ts now the "Bridgepoint Administrative Building" but who cares? Description on their website says that access to the original jail, regularly not open to the public, WILL BE OPENED for two days. So photography is allowed, but no tripods (boo). Not sure what to expect, but mark it on your calendars people, (and be prepared for a lineup.. there's no guaranteed entrance. If you sleep in and waste time, you can miss out. I hope I don't. For those of you unfamiliar with the location, building was constructed in 1864? and was the last use of capitol punishment in Canada. I believe. Google it. The architecture (from what I've seen) looks amazing. Curious to see how much of the original structure is in tact. 

Doors Open Toronto has omitted this location for the last few years, so take advantage!!! It might never happen again! See you all there!
