Coal Harbour, if I might pontificate, is an example for those struggling mightily to redevelop Toronto's discordant, inaccessible waterfront. Coal Harbour sprung up almost overnight, leaving the entire waterfront completely accessible and useful to the public while the development was almost entirely private. The water boy pictured here, poised atop a wet sculptured wall is a prime example of the variety of public art that accompanied the development. The water boy is actually standing at the lip of a huge pool in the interior, private courtyard of the buildings but the developers were kind enough to entertain all of us. Whimsy, with a story behind it? I don't know.
