ST LAWRENCE NEIGHBOURHOOD
The St Lawrence neighbourhood is named for the focal point of the area, the St Lawrence Market. Originally the market for the Town of York, founded in 1793, it continues to this day and in particular the Saturday’s farmer’s market is thronged with eager buyers from all over the city in pursuit of fresh, locally grown organic produce.

Critically acclaimed as a major urban planning success, some of the most interesting architecture in the the city can be found in the area, including the famous wedge-shaped Flatiron Building, the first building of this type in North America, built in 1892.
Pretty much everything an urban dweller could wish for is within walking distance, including the city’s financial hub, several major hospitals, universities and colleges. The famous PATH network of retail and commercial space extends to over 27 kms underground in addition to the wide range of sophisticated and electric shopping, restaurants and cafes in this area. Many residents choose not to own cars due to the convenience of Toronto’s subway and streetcar system on their doorstep.
