Where once was the Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, now is a chic home decor store. At 100 Yorkville Ave., which houses Teatro Verde,  the original facade of the first Mount Sinai Hospital (originally called The Hebrew Maternity and Convalescent Hospital) has been preserved. This showpiece of what started out as a small florist shop into a grand “green theatre” comes highly recommended for anyone who loves their home enough to decorate it.

  1. What an interesting transition for that building — going from hospital to a home decor store! Would like to visit that one! Great capture for the day, Lesley!


  2. Teatro Verde means green theater in portuguese! 🙂 I think the words are the same in spanish and maybe in italian, but I’m not sure. Do you know where the owners came from?

  3. Interesting, I wonder if there is still a Mount Sinai hospital in Toronto. My husband tells me that when he was a child he visited Toronto with his parents. A shop keeper, who did not speak English could converse with his mother, who did not speak French, in Yiddish.

  4. This is a great transformation. There is also a Mt Sinai Hosp in New York, where my high school classmate, works as an RN.

  5. verde and teatro means the same in tagalog (Philippine’s main language) : green theatre…beautiful design, but which fits better, as a hospital or theater…I can’t say. Have a lovely week!

  6. Thank you for showing a part of your world, and have a lovely day.

  7. Interesting transition of a building. Large space of hospital would have been suitable for the display of various furniture.

    Thanks for your visit and nice comment.

  8. I think it’s wonderful that this beautiful building has been given a new lease on life.
