Toronto’s Neighbourhoods

Toronto Star neighbourhood map (thumbnail) The Toronto Star is developing a map of Toronto’s neighbourhoods, based in part on reader feedback. (Boundaries are always the problem with neighbourhoods, because they’re not always strictly defined; growing up in a western suburb of Winnipeg, I wasn’t sure which neighbourhood my family’s house belonged to — St. Charles or Crestview.) What’s interesting about the online version of the Star’s map is that, because it uses the Google Maps interface, Google’s neighbourhood names are also on the map, resulting in a few examples of dissonance: Google’s label for Rexdale is not within the boundaries for Rexdale set out by the Star, for example.
