The North York region of Toronto is noted on the real estate map below. North York has the boundaries of Steeles Avenue on the north, Victoria Park to the east, Eglinton & Lawrence to the south & Humber River to the west.
The Township of North York was formed on June 13, 1922 out of the rural part of the Township of York. The rapidly urbanizing parts of the township remained in that township. As North York became more urbanized, it became the Borough of North Yorkin 1967, and then on February 14, 1979, the City of North York. To commemorate receiving its city charter on St. Valentine's Day, the city's corporate slogan was "The City with Heart". It now forms the largest part of the area served by the "North York Community Council", a committee of Toronto City Council.
North York is a place where I have my office (Yonge & Sheppard) and spent most of time in this area because most of my clients are living here.
North York is one of the most diverse areas of Toronto, as it contains some of the most affluent areas of the city (The Bridle Path, Hogg's Hollow, York Mills, Willowdale, Bayview Village) and some of the poorest (Jane and Finch, Flemingdon Park, Lawrence Heights).
