Toronto's Yonge/Eglinton

Recommended Posts

Toronto's midtown "nodes" are a series of neighborhoods each centred around a subway station on

the Yonge Street line. The presence of the subway makes the neighborhoods generally more

desirable (and expensive) than similar neighborhoods not around subway stops.

Yonge + Eglinton

Yonge and Eglinton is probably the most well-known of the "midtown nodes". It also has the best

nightlife of the nodes. Not only are there numerous bars and nightclubs, but a number of stores,

restaurants, and internet cafes open until at least 3am, and in some cases 24 hours. Yonge + Eglinton is located about 4 miles North of the CBD. As you can see from the photos, the area is extraordinarily well-retailed.

Here are some aerials of the neighborhood:

Mars Diner (in the centre of this picture) is one of at least 2 (that I know of) 24-hour sit-down

restaurants in the neighborhood.

This neighborhood became very popular in the late 1960s/early 1970s when the subway was extended

up here. Many "slab-style" apartment towers were built at the time. Many people hate these buildings,

but to me, they're an important like to an era of architecture.

Outstandning tour! I love the variety of everything in that 'hood. I also like how well the 2nd floor retail stores fit in and still have good visibility.

And I finally got to see garages in Toronto!
