Yonge and Bloor is considered the center of the city where the subway lines originally intersected. This is probably the best location to access any other area of the city from with every form of transportation at your doorway.
The area has its own downtown urban vibe with many of the small side streets full of local colour and independent shops and restaurants.
What surprises many people when they first move to the area is the neighbourhood feel that is so apparent. Within a relatively short period of time one gets acquainted with the shopkeepers and neighbours around them and they quickly settle into the Yonge and Bloor lifestyle.
The area boasts incredible ethnic, financial, and lifestyle diversity; from the gay village to Canada’s most prestigious address to date – One Bloor. There is a place here for everyone.
The neighborhood boasts an array of condominium and rental choices, but very little in the way of townhouses and houses though small pockets do exist.
The area is bounded by Bloor on the North end, Gerrard on the South and Yonge on the West side and Sherbourne on the East..
Both the Yonge subway line and Bloor subway line bring you to Yonge & Bloor.
