In this day of Mega Malls and Big Box it's really nice to has this kind of alternative. Best of the 'villages in the city'. Greek town, little Italy, Roncesvale, all of the others are nice, each with their own feel. For me it's being able to walk from my home and get what I need from people that remember... More

i've been frequenting these parts for some time now and i always find the best place to do lunches with business counterparts, that is to say the atmosphere is positive in such that it makes for good essences .

Stay at the Intercontinental when you visit this area. Great location for all your shopping and eating needs. This area is like the Rodeo drive of Toronto. Gucci and Prada to name a few hot spots

Great place for a leisurely walk. Tons of good bakeries and delis, as well as some cute restaurants... but choose the mom and pop shops and you wont be disappointed!

It's a decent neighborhoods with some nice shops, but it's not what people always think it is. It's nice for a brief afternoon and perhaps a visit to High Park, and that's it.

I had a good Caesar salad several months ago so ordered same a month ago - inedible. I was back there 2 weeks ago and looked for to the wings. OLD, DRY. I... More

This has to be one of the greatest neighborhoods to live in. Everything is still mostly family run. I am happy that they kept out the big box stores. Walking the area is the discovery of things gone past. A very vibrant place.

We love our neighbourhood to pieces. it has a small town feel, not too close nor too far from down town Toronto. It is very easy to access any other part of GTA from here if you need to visit family or friends or go to work, altho, one certainly has everything one might need right here at one's doorstep....

Whether for coffee and a croissant, pie, ready made gourmet to go (Max's), fresh fish, meat, cheese or flowers, you will find them all along this walk. For about 6 blocks, you can walk on both sides of the street and soak in the atmosphere of this quaint neighbor hood. Book stores, clothing, bedding, etc. It's all here. Independently owned... More

Staying in York-Crosstown

Neighborhood Profile
York-Crosstown
York-Crosstown is a sleepy area of Toronto dotted gorgeously with hills and farmland, stately homes and parks. An affluent district in parts, the stately houses at Baby Point along Jane Street are especially breathtaking, and make for a lovely wander on a clear day. Parks are bountiful in York-Crosstown, which makes it a vibrant area for outdoor play and sports, providing a break from the hustle of Toronto's busy, jam-packed city center. For a little spice after a walk in the park, the Little Jamaica area of York sports cheap, authentic food from the Caribbean. This area is restful and more orientated towards outdoor activity and the exploration of nature.
