The Lowdown on Broadview North

Your Typical Neighbour

Young well-educated singles are a majority in this hood. There are some young families as well, often with one single child. There is a high chance that your neighbour is Greek as well. 

What We

Broadview North is essentially an extension of Greektown... so helloooo greek food, and home to some of the best in the city. 

What We Don't

Rush hour traffic on the Gardiner is a complete nightmare, so if you are travelling west to east or vice versa, be prepared for bumper to bumper congestion.
