Neighbourhoods HearT of THe ciTy Bloor-Yorkville www.bloor-yorkville.com DETAILS In the 1960s, Yorkville was the locus of hippie culture in Toronto, with the likes of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot witnessing their musical-career starts here. Now, Yorkville is more “hip haute” than hippie with its designer boutiques and fine-dining establishments. It is comprised of cobblestone courtyards, laneways and an award-winning park. Alongside the five-star hotels are charming Victorian restorations housing antiques shops, clothing and home-décor boutiques, cafés and art galleries. At its southern edge, high fashion retail reigns supreme, sharing this strip of Bloor with homegrown purveyors of fine clothing, jewellery and home accessories, such as Harry Rosen and Holt Renfrew.

Anchored in the southwest corner by Honest Ed’s — the eclectic landmark discount store of the late philanthropist Ed Mirvish — the neighbourhood is also home to Koreatown.
