City of Toronto officially opens George Faludy Place
The City of Toronto will officially open George Faludy Place in honour of George Faludy, one of Hungary’s greatest poets and a longtime resident of Toronto. George Faludy Place is located across the street from 25 St. Mary’s St. where Mr. Faludy lived for much of his 22 years of self-imposed exile from Hungary. Mr. Faludy, 95 years old, was planning to return to Toronto for the official opening but died in Budapest on September 1, 2006.

George Faludy Place is an initiative of the Toronto Legacy Project. The purpose of the Legacy Project is to honor notable artists, scientists and thinkers who have enriched the life of Toronto by embedding their names in the fabric of the city.

Date: Tuesday, October 3
Time: 12:30 p.m.
Place: George Faludy Place, opposite 25 St. Mary St. (south of Charles Street and east of Bay Street)

There will be a reception immediately following the ceremony at the Neuba Cher Gallery located at 81 St. Nicolas St.
