The Queensway is a major street in the municipalities of Toronto and Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It is the western extension of Queen Street West, after it crosses King Street and Roncesvalles Avenue in Toronto.
North York, now amalgamated as part of the larger City of Toronto, was until 1999 a separate city. MovingInCanada.com treats the area south of Steels down to Eglinton as “North York”, rather than strictly following old municipal boundaries
Yorkville is one of Toronto’s most dynamic neighbourhoods. It is an eclectic mix of luxury condominium apartment buildings, commercial office towers, four star hotels, theatres, gourmet restaurants, a prestigious shopping district and picture postcard Victorian homes.
Downtown is dotted with skyscrapers, the city’s streets are bustling with people on the go and the public transportation system is top-notch. But lift up the hood of Canada’s biggest city and you’ll find there’s more to the eye than an amazing skyline.
Named the best food market in the world by National Geographic in 2012, St. Lawrence Market is a foodie heaven for both Toronto residents and visitors to the city. Filled with history, tasty food, great shops selling artisan goods and novelty items, St. Lawrence Market is the perfect spot to spend your day.
The street has been rebalanced to make it a place for people, bikes and transit – not just an arterial road. A grand pedestrian promenade about three times the size of a normal city sidewalk graces the south side of Queens Quay.
