Jones east to Victoria Park with the Danforth as the main street.
Danforth Ave and Main Street
Great subway access, new families, farmer’s market, Islamic communities, mostly houses, a few condos and some areas with concentration of high rise rentals.
DID YOU KNOW?:
The Bloor–Danforth line opened from Keele station in the west to Woodbine station in the east on February 26, 1966. The line was originally 12.9 kilometres and ran alongside Bloor Street and Danforth Avenue.
To be so close to a major, commercial street (Danforth Ave) and a subway line, you would expect the Danforth Village to be out of reach for many Torontonians, but this neighbourhood is still quite affordable compared to other Toronto neighbourhoods, and it is only getting better.
As you go east along Danforth though, past the massive and reno’d homes of Riverdale, you find more humble and affordable homes near this main street between Jones and Vic Park.
Danforth Avenue is mostly known for the razzle and dazzle of the successful Greek section of the street at its eastern flank, but the Danforth Village extends west beyond its more famous section. It does not have as busy of a commercial strip as the Greek Danforth west of Jones, but there’s a lot of change under way east of Jones and Mortimer.
The best thing about this area of town is it’s access to every where else. Just steps away from the subway that doesn’t suffer the same congestion (usually) as the traffic-prone streetcar of Queen or Dundas.
Prices in the Danforth Village tend to be higher the closer you are to Jones and Greenwood and drop as you approach Vic Park. Before Toronto amalgamated, the northern section was East York, a separate municipality from Toronto. Homes are more affordable north of the Danforth as oppose to south of the street. In a nutshell, the further east and north you go, the more affordable the housing stock for the Danforth Village.
