Perhaps Canada's most vibrant neighbourhood, Riverdale is dominated by Victorian and Edwardian architecture. The history of Riverdale is the history of The Danforth and immigration to Canada. My own maternal Great Grandmother landed here from England as a widow with several children in tow around the turn of the century. Successive waves of newcomers from Ireland, Scotland, Italy and Greece have left their imprint on the streetscape and local institutions. The main artery of Riverdale is Danforth Ave referred to as "The Danforth".
Now known as Greek Town, the Danforth is one of the country's hottest restaurant and retail strips. The demographic of the area ranges from the middle class to more affluent residents, and this positively influences the quality of life for the local residents. Riverdale, Toronto real estate is in high demand as this is a desirable area for both professionals and families. Public transit is unparalleled and schools rate extremely high in academic achievement when compared the province of Ontario overall. The walkability score, the extent to which the built environment is friendly to the presence of people living, shopping, visiting, enjoying or spending time in an area, is very high as most amenities are within walking distance.
