Danforth East

Head over heels for the eastside.

Highlights:

  • As diverse as they come, this area has a little utopia of Ethiopian, Moroccan, Greek, Italian, Hakka, Mexican, Thai and Tunisian entrepreneurs all within blocks of each other.
  • Danforth East hosts a variety of gastro-pubs, artisan studios, pop-up shops, and social enterprises, which are as esoteric as they are interesting.
  • Stan Wadlow and Taylor Creek Park are nearby with miles of biking and walking trails that can take you across the city, surrounded by dense beautiful trees and the creek itself splitting the trail up the middle.
  • Set in a beautiful park the East Lynn Farmer’s Market boasts local eats, wine, live entertainment, face-painting, crafts and even has a splash pool for the kids.
  • This is one area where you can still buy a cute house for an affordable price, live close to the subway, and keep your car for driving out of town on the weekends.
  • 5-minute drive to the Beach, the heart of Greektown, Little India, the DVP, and 10-minute drive to Lakeshore/Gardiner, Leslieville, the gorgeous Scarborough Bluffs.

About Danforth East:

Recently rebranded as “The Danny”, this friendly neighbourhood has become a hot spot for young professionals’, many of whom are noted artists including members of the Toronto Symphony, Canadian Opera, and film and television performers.

This may be owing to the strong neighbourhood pride, its active parent participation in the school system, and its tight-knit community. As well the relative affordability of the houses in Danforth Village, together with the convenience of the Bloor-Danforth subway line make this neighbourhood an excellent choice for first-time home buyers.

WALK SCORE
TRANSIT SCORE

History of Danforth East:

  • It first appeared in the 19th century as the ‘Coleman’ postal village.
  • By the turn of the century the area was called “Little York” (an original name of Toronto) and became a part of the short-lived Town of East Toronto.
  • The single most important event came in 1919 with the completion of the Bloor Viaduct bridge over the Don Valley, finally connecting the Danforth to the City via Bloor Street.
  • The area developed from the 1910s thru the 1930s as a streetcar suburb with most of the housing to the north and south of the street dating from this period.
  • In its early years, the Danforth was home to outlawed activities like making moonshine and dog and cock fighting.
  • First inhabitants were mainly immigrants from England, Ireland, and Scotland. In the 1950s an influx of Italians came to the area, followed by Greeks and other immigrants in the 1960s.
  • The Allenby movie theatre, one of the finest Kaplan and Sprachman theatres designed in the Art Deco style, opened in the 1930s but by the 1970s, the rock scene took it over with Rocky Horror Picture show and The Song Remains the Same.

Don’t Miss Out on Houses in Danforth East:

A great investment opportunity, as tear down houses are being replaced with new builds and frequently break the million-dollar barrier.
