International Village

AOsh9tM

International Village | Place | A shopping mall (aka “Tinseltown”) built in 1999 that offers a strikingly diverse assortment of oddness on the edge of Chinatown. True story: its central atrium lines up perfectly with the railroad that once ran through it, and there is a massive sundial on the roof.

Usage: “One of my favourite pastimes is to wander the labyrinth of passageways at International Village…”explore-the-lexicon
