Half House: Toronto Building Split Down The Middle A Byproduct Of History

A lot of people probably do double-takes when they walk past 54-1/2 St. Patrick Street in Toronto. It's as if aliens beamed up half the historical 1890s duplex, leaving a mind-boggling empty space where half the building once stood.

So the building remains, "marooned opposite a concrete surface parking garage and snuggled tight against a major housing development," as BlogTO describes it.

The building recently got a lot of attention on the social site Reddit, where a user posted a picture of it under the title "Rough Divorce." Another Redditor described it as "the best halfway house ever."
