TTC Media Advisory: Feel the Sound at Bay Lower Station During Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2007) - The TTC's "ghost" station, Bay Lower, will host an interesting art exhibit during the 2nd annual Scotiabank Nuit Blanche event, which will be held during the evening of Saturday, September 29th until the early morning hours of Sunday, September 30th.

Admission is free.
