Gore: The Avenue That Slashes the East End – July 7th.

If you look closely at a map of Vancouver, you’ll see that Gore Avenue does not align with anything. It was carved out of the forest before surveyors were laying out streets, giving it a unique path at an angle from all the others. Yet so much of the city’s development at one time or another has been found along Gore Ave. Railtown and the Japanese District, elements of church and state, the old boundary of Chinatown, and the glorious and humble architecture of the 20th century can be found on this strip of road. From Hogan’s Alley to the edge of old False Creek, no other street in Vancouver delivers so much in nine blocks. Tickets are $15.
