York, Toronto, Ontario was incorporated by the Province of Ontario in 1850 as the Township of York. It was bounded in the west by the Humber River, in the east by what would become Victoria Park Avenue, and in the north by what would become Steeles Avenue. To the west was the township of Etobicoke and to the east was the township of Scarborough, while to the north were the townships of Vaughan and Markham.
Humewood-Cedarvale was developed in the 1910s to attract development in the growing township. Oakwood - Vaughan was also developed during this time. In the 1920s, the character of the township changed, with its southern reaches abutting the city of Toronto taking on a more urban character, compared with the very rural character of the north. The decision was made to split the township in two, with the northern, rural portion becoming North York. The remaining, two pockets of unincorporated urban development at the north end of the city, were split by the village of North Toronto, which was by then a part of the City of Toronto. Within years, the Province of Ontario saw that this arrangement was impractical, and further subdivided York, creating the township of East York out of the eastern pocket. The Township of York contracted streetcar and bus services from the Toronto Transit Commission, but remained independent from Toronto. During this time, famed novelist Ernest Hemingway resided in the Humewood-Cedarvale community.
In the 1920s, York's first high school, Vaughan Road Collegiate Institute was built in 1926, along with York Memorial Collegiate Institute at Eglinton Avenue and Keele Street and St. Michael's College School at Bathurst Street north of St. Clair Avenue.
York was part of the federation of twelve suburban municipalities that joined Toronto in 1954 to form Metropolitan Toronto. York's first and largest library, York Public Library, was built near the intersection of Eglinton Ave. and Dufferin St. in 1964, later renamed Maria Shchuka and rebuilt. In 1967, it absorbed the village of Weston, and later became the City of York. It was amalgamated into the new City of Toronto on January 1, 1998. Since amalgamation, Maria Shchuka is part of the Toronto Public Library system.
York's Civic Centre is located at 2700 Eglinton Avenue West, between Black Creek Drive and Keele Street, near York's Museum and York Memorial Collegiate Institute.
Although no subway station is fully in York, Eglinton West, St. Clair West, Old Mill, and Jane stations are just outside York's boundaries. However, only one GO station is in York, Weston station, is in the namesake community.
YORK, TORONTO, ONTARIO NEIGHBOURHOODS
Keelesdale-Eglinton West is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto. The neighbourhood has also been referred to as Silverthorn in the past, although despite this fact the city has chosen Keelesdale-Eglinton West. This is a working class neighbourhood and the majority of residents are owners (almost 60%). Although the houses are modest they are also single detached and owned. There is an above average contingency of Latin language speakers including Portuguese, Italian and Spanish. The hilly terrain of the neighbourhood is comparable to nearby neighbourhood but distinguishable compared to the city which in general slopes South to the water. The winding and one way streets make through traffic a non factor for kids kicking a soccer ball on the street.
Lambton is a neighbourhood in the former City of York, Ontario, Canada. The City of York was amalgamated with five other cities in 1998 to form the current City of Toronto. Lambton is located in the west end of the city, bounded by the Humber River to the west, Black Creek to the north, Jane Street to the East, and Baby Point to the south.
Eglinton West, also known as Little Jamaica, is a retail section of Toronto, Canada situated along Eglinton Avenue West from Allen Road to Keele Street. It is located in the former borough of York. There are a large number of Jamaican businesses along this strip. There are also businesses of other communities from the Caribbean. The surrounding community is culturally diverse and contains a large Jamaican population. The businesses along Eglinton Avenue West are frequented by many in the Greater Toronto Area's 300,000-plus Jamacian community. This area is part of the York-Eglinton Business Improvement Area which stretches from Marlee Avenue in the east, to Chamberlain Avenue in the West (just west of Dufferin Street).
Mount Dennis is a neighbourhood located in the former city of York, now officially part of the 'megacity' of Toronto. The neighbourhood is bordered by the intersection of Jane and Weston Roads to the North, and Black Creek to the East and South, as the creek curves parallel to Alliance Ave. before crossing under Jane Street on its way to drain into the Humber River. To the West the Humber River creates a natural border.
The area gets its name from the Dennis family, who owned the property at the turn of the 19th century, Loyalist shipbuilders who had a boatyard on the Humber. It was largely rural, with orchards, gravel and clay pits and a few market gardens until Kodak Canada moved their factory to a site at Eglinton and Weston Roads, along the rail line running next to Weston Road, during World War One. The area became what urban geographer Richard Harris described as an "unplanned suburb" in his book (Unplanned Suburbs: Toronto's American Tragedy 1900 to 1950, Johns Hopkins University Press, 1996). Workers at Kodak and the nearby stockyards once located at Weston Road and St. Clair Ave., as well as CCM, Willys Overland and other factories north and south of Mount Dennis built their own homes before municipal services were in place, and small developers built "infill" homes, gradually filling the streets with the current housing stock of former cottages and small, fully detached homes, among the most affordable housing stock in Toronto for recent immigrants and first-time homeowners.
The neighbourhood is a hilly neighbourhood which has an abundance of ravines, parks and rivers. Half of the people in this area live in high rise buildings which, though generally run down, provide in many instances an excellent view of the surrounding natural beauty.
A Diverse Neighbourhood Although income levels are low there is a fair share of ownership in the area due to the relatively affordable housing in the area. The neighbourhood truly is a classic Toronto example of diversity with dozens of ethnicities represented. With respect to religion there is an above average number people from many faiths including Roman Catholic, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Pentecostal and Adventist. With respect to languages spoken it is equally diverse and above average when it comes to the number of people speaking Vietnamese, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean and more! (Source: Statistics Canada 2001 Census). The visible minority statistics also lend credence to the fact that this is without question a very diverse neighbourhood.
Oakwood - Vaughan is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada bordered by Eglinton Avenue to the north, Dufferin Street to the west, St. Clair Avenue to the south and Arlington Avenue to the east. It however overlaps with the Caledonia-Fairbanks neighbourhood to the west. It was in the former city of York before it amalgamated. There is a sizable Italian, Caribbean and Portuguese community and accordingly, an accompanying large Roman Catholic population in the area, hence its three Catholic elementary schools run by the Toronto Catholic District School Board in its area: St. Thomas Aquinas, D'Arcy McGee, and St. Alphonsus. It also has some Rastafarian presence in the northern end of the community.
Oakwood - Vaughan has many one-way streets, which diverted most of the traffic into Vaughan Road and Oakwood Ave. The main secondary school in this neighbourhood is Vaughan Road Academy, which is located on Vaughan Road between Alameda Ave. and Winona Dr. However, there is another secondary school at its periphery, Oakwood Collegiate Institute, at the corner of Oakwood Ave. and St. Clair Ave. Elementary schools in this neighbourhood include Rawlinson and J.R. Wilcox Community Schools at Earnscliffe Road between Oakwood Ave. and Glenholme Ave., and Ava Road between Winona Dr. and Atlas Ave., respectively. Arlington Middle School is also located in this neighbourhood. These schools are run by the Toronto District School Board.
Vaughan Road is a contour collector road that is parallel with a buried creek to the north called Castle Frank Brook. This road was popular with street racers in the 1950s due to its many curves. Vaughan Road begins on Bathurst Street south of St. Clair Ave. West, then it becomes a north-south street, hence its address numbering system, then it becomes a northwest-southeast street. Finally, Vaughan Road has a dead-end near the intersection of Eglinton Ave. and Dufferin St., although before the Esso station was built in that intersection, Vaughan Road intersected Dufferin St. Additionally, Vaughan Road is often used as a short cut between Allen Road and Downtown Toronto via Oakwood Ave. The bus route—90 Vaughan—serves this community. Its termini are the Jesmond (Oakwood) loop, which is named after the side street that the 90A branch end, and the Eglinton loop, which is the loop that the rush hour 90 branch end, which both are in this neighbourhood.
Meanwhile, Oakwood Avenue is also a collector road but it is north-south rather than northwest-southeast as in Vaughan Road. It also has a bus route—63 Ossington—which serves the community. The 161 Rogers Road bus route also serves the southern end of the neighbourhood. Oakwood Village is on Oakwood Ave. between Earlsdale Ave. and Clovelly Ave. There are plans to transform this village into an art district, which would lead to the gentrification of the neighbourhood.
Built in 1997, Oakwood Village public library is located on Oakwood Ave. and Holland Park Ave. However, the recently rebuilt Maria Shchuka public library is also located on the neighbourhood's periphery at Eglinton Ave. and Northcliffe Blvd., which coincidentally, is a northbound one-way street north of Rogers Rd. Both of these libraries are run by the Toronto Public Library. Oakwood - Vaughan touches one subway station: Eglinton West station, which is the terminus of the aforementioned 63 Ossington bus route.
Old Mill is a neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the banks of the Humber River. Historically, it was a hunting and fishing area for First Nations before European exploration of the area, and subsequent settlement. The first settlement in the area was around the Kings Mill, used to cut lumber for the first homes in York, Upper Canada, now known as Toronto.
Rockcliffe-Smythe is a neighbourhood in the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the former city of York, which is now part of the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). The neighbourhood is not bordered by four streets, but the closest borders are Eglinton Ave W to the North, Weston Road to the East which then veers South and West until it reaches St. Claire Ave W and the CPR line which runs into the Western border of Lambton Park and Golf Club. This neighbourhood is surrounded by green space including Smythe Park centrally located, Gladhurst Park and Scarlett Woods golf course to the North, and again Lambton park and golf course on the Western border. The Black Creek, parks and great topography make Rockliffe-Smythe a natural beauty of a neighbourhood.
Despite some of the natural green beauty this neighbourhood is one of the lowest in terms of average income and average house price (source:statscan 2001). It is culturally diverse with an above average number of South East Asian and Latin American descendants. As with many neighbourhoods defined by the city, there are often more traditional names for pockets of the city. Directly North East of Jane and St. Claire W is an area called Syme, named after George Syme. Further to the East (beyond Hilldale road) is another pocket called Harwood. Harwood is bordered almost by creek in all directions.
Weston is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in the north-west end of the city. The neighbourhood generally lies south of Highway 401, east of the Humber River, north of Eglinton Avenue, and west of Jane Street. Weston Road just north of Lawrence Avenue is the "downtown" core of Weston, with many small businesses and services. In addition to its traditional Anglo-Canadian roots, Weston is currently home to people of various cultures and ethnicities from around the world.

Baby Point is an upscale residential neighbourhood in west end of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The name is pronounced "Bobby Point" by long-time residents, a corruption of the French pronunciation of Baby, after whom the neighbourhood is named. A set of historic stone gates at the intersection of Jane Street and Baby Point Road mark the entrance to this neighbourhood, which could be said to be a precursor to modern gated communities. Baby Point is situated on a peninsula of land or a 'point' overlooking the Humber River. It is surrounded by ravines and parkland.
Houses in Baby Point vary from large English manor houses shaded by towering oak trees to more modest two-story detached houses. The larger homes tend to back onto the Humber Valley ravine and are found along Baby Point Road and Baby Point Crescent, the neighbourhood's "signature" streets, while the smaller homes are found near the Jane Street and Baby Point Road entrance. Most of the homes in Baby Point were built in the 1920s and 1930s.
James Baby was a member of a prominent Quebec fur trading family and a former politician in Upper Canada. He settled at Baby Point in 1816, after discovering an abandoned Seneca village there. A lush apple orchard covered the area and salmon swam in the Humber River, giving it an Eden-like quality. Water from a fresh spring nearby was bottled and shipped worldwide.
Baby's heirs lived at Baby Point until 1910, when the government acquired the land with the intention of establishing a military fortress and barracks at the site. The government eventually changed their plans and sold the land to a developer named Home Smith, who began developing a subdivision in 1912. Home Smith would later develop a residential area across the Humber, The Kingsway.
Beechborough-Greenbrook is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto. It is located in the former town of York and is bordered by Greenbrook Dr to the North, the CNR rail line to the East, Eglinton Ave W to the South and the rail line to the West.
The neighbourhood has a large number of Roman Catholics who are Italian and Portuguese by descent. The neighbourhood is very diverse; however, and there are also above average numbers of Baptists, Buddhists and Christians. Latin Americans, Blacks and South East Asians are also represented in above average numbers in this neighbourhood (source: statscan 2001). There is a huge number of low rise buildings which are rental units. Due to the low income in the area there is an above average number of renters and rental units.
Briar Hill-Belgravia is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto. It is bordered by Eglinton Ave W to the south, Marlee Ave to the East, Castlefield (and Wingold) to the North and finally the CNR lines to the West (Croham Road).The area is modest with house values and average incomes' in the lower quadrant compared to the Toronto average. The area's inhabitants are diverse; there is a very large roman catholic base, greater than average Italian and Portuguese speakers and a spike in Filipino's who make up this neighbourhood.
Caledonia-Fairbanks is a neighbourhood located in the city of Toronto. The neighbourhood borders are Eglinton Ave to the North, Dufferin to the East, St. Clair to the South and the CNR lines to the West.The neighbourhood has an old feel to it, with the rolling hills, front porch sitters and cast iron. The majority of the neighbourhood is Roman Catholic (over 65%) and there is a huge number of people speaking Portuguese.
Humewood-Cedarvale is a neighbourhood in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, historically part of York. The neighbourhood is bordered by Bathurst Street to the west, Eglinton Avenue to the north, Arlington Avenue to the west and St. Clair Avenue to the south. The neighbourhood is often referred to by each distinct name with the north-east half of the neighbourhood represented by Cedarvale and the south-west as Humewood. Humewood is a middle class, very family oriented neighbourhood. The tree lined (and one way) streets provide a lovely accent to the kids who can enjoy very little through traffic. Humewood Park was once part of the estate of William Hume Blake, now used as social housing, which is the neighbourhood's namesake. Cedarvale is a wealthy community, and includes multi-million dollar homes facing the Cedarvale Ravine. Cedarvale and Humewood are separated by Vaughan Road, however just slightly further east is the huge Cedarvale ravine, which was once proposed to be an expressway, which would have been the extension to Allen Road. At the intersection of Claxton Blvd. and Bathurst St., there is an imposing gate, built in the 1910s, which symbolized its wealth and it was originally intended to be a gated community. However, due to decreased demand for real estate during World War I, and the decreasing fortune of Sir Henry Pellatt, who could not pay the bills for the nearby Casa Loma and supervised the community's construction, the gates were never completed, causing this to be an open community, but the columns are still there. Additionally, Claxton Blvd. was to be named Connaught Ave., but only a small street connecting Vaughan Road is named that (Claxton Circle), where there is a bench in the circular parkette that some Cedarvale couples are believed to fall in love with each other. There are two elementary schools in this area: Humewood and Cedarvale Community Schools, which represent the namesake portions of this neighbourhood. Arlington Middle School is also located in this community. However, there are no publicly-funded secondary schools in this neighbourhood, but one can attend the nearby Vaughan Road Academy, Oakwood Collegiate Institute, or Forest Hill Collegiate Institute. These schools are all run by the Toronto District School Board. Near St. Michael's College School, there is an apartment building that Ernest Hemingway lived during his stay in Canada, which is now called "The Hemingway." Additionally, there are no public libraries in this neighbourhood, but one may use the Oakwood Village, the Maria Shchuka, or the Wychwood public libraries. There is a large Jewish community in Humewood-Cedarvale (although more so in Cedarvale) at over 23% of residents with several key religious sites within walking distance (Holy Blossom Temple and Beth Tzedec Synagogue). In Cedarvale itself, Jews make up about two-thirds of the population, the highest proportion in Toronto, according to the 2001 Census, hence the lack of any Catholic schools in the area except for the nearby St. Alphonsus Catholic elementary school. When Eglinton Avenue and St. Clair Avenue enter this neighbourhood, there are many trendy restaurants, cafés, and bars along these thoroughfares, including Starbucks at both ends of the neighbourhood. This community has some access to public transportation since it touches two subway stations: Eglinton West and St. Clair West, and the Vaughan bus route passes through this neighbourhood.
