Long Description:
This whole area (east of Main St and south of Water Ave) used to be Canadian National Railway yards. Many of the original railway building have been converted into the diverse commercial/retail/leisure area called The Forks.
One building that still remains is the CNR Powerhouse along with it's chimney. The building is now occupied by CITY-TV and the chimney is no longer used.
