Traditionally a neighbourhood with the highest percentage of senior citizens in Toronto, the kid-friendly East York has become a popular spot for young families to settle in. Relatively affordable houses as well as quick and easy access to downtown Toronto make real estate in this location desirable for young professionals as well.

East York is bounded by Danforth Avenue to the south, Victoria Park Avenue to the east, Taylor Creek Park, O’Connor Avenue, and Broadview Avenue along the Don Valley Parkway to the north and west.
