This is where it all began. Toronto was founded in 1793 as the Town of York in the area that now comprises the downtown core. Grand estates and Victorian row houses once stood where gleaming new condos and office towers now stand. Downtown is and always has been the heartbeat of Toronto. Many of Toronto’s most popular and highly acclaimed neighbourhoods are situated Downtown including West Queen West, Trinity Bellwoods, Cabbagetown and Harbourfront.
