    Walk at Yorkville

    I just walked along this street. They said celebrities whenever in Toronto can be spotted here dining or clubbing. Yorkville is a mixture of high end stores, beautiful condos and restored victorian houses. I saw lots of designer shops in the area so fashion is really here. It is the trendiest neighborhood in Toronto.

    Directions: i just walk up from Yonge street. Is the second street after Bloor. Next to Cumberland street.

    If you want to just hang out, and enjoy yourself, then here is the place to do it. There are shops, bars, restaurants, and open public spaces. And, it's right near Casa Loma and the Spadina Museum (just go up hike up the Baldwin Steps).

    Directions: North of downtown. Follow either Yonge St or University Avenue north to Bloor St. Points of contact are for the Bloor-Yorkville Business Improvement Association.

    Yorkville

    Yorkville is located just outside downtown Toronto. It is considered the trendy and affluent subarb. It is bounded rougly by Bloor Street (south), Davenport Road (north), Yonge Street (east) and Avenue Road (west).

    It was founded by businessman Joseph Bloor in 1830. Yorkville then began as a residential suburb with residential streets and gardens.

    In the 1960s, Yorkville flourished as Toronto's cultural centre, and was considered by many as a source of musical talent.

    In the 80s and90s, Yorkville resulted into its current mix of high-end retail, including art galleries, antique stores, fashion boutiques as wells as bars, cafes and restaurants.

    Many upscale and designer stores are found in the streets. To store my extra pictures, I made an extra album of Yorkville pictures. Click here: Yorkville Toronto Album

    Yorkville - Where the stars come out to play

    If you're in Toronto, don't miss visiting Yorkville. It is the trendy area (about 2 blocks) where you will find delightful cafe's and amazing restaurants. It is also the place you are most likely to find famous people loitering about. It is located about a block northwest of the intersection of Bay and Bloor streets. The Four Seasons and the Hyatt are two hotels which border this area.
