My New Neighbourhood: Downtown East Toronto

I’m loving my new neighborhood! I lived for many years in the Summerhill, and then the Avenue Road/Dupont area of the city, but I have now moved to Downtown East, Jarvis and Wellesley area.

It’s a more urban location with wonderful older houses and great architecture:

Mixed with some newer houses, and nice wide streets:

The beautiful Allan Gardens is right down the street:
