Downtown Eastside - Old Town - Corktown
King Street East - Tanja Tiziana
Toronto's Downtown Eastside is a collection of neighbourhoods, some the oldest in Toronto, beginning at Yonge Street and stretching east to the Don River. The brightest spot - literally - is Dundas Square, and is at the city's commercial heart. Nearby is the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, anchored by the market of the same name, in operation in some form since the early 1800s. Adjacent are the Old Town and Corktown neighbourhoods that are filled with Victorian rowhouses and many of Toronto's creative industries. The Distillery District near the Don River is one of Toronto's greatest adaptive reuse stories: the old Gooderham and Worts whisky distillery has been converted into shops, theatres and art spaces.
