wikipedia on High Park North,Runnymede-Bloor West,Swansea

Toronto has 140

Neighbourhoods (still working out which do /are  part of Toronto West)

Neighbourhoods  descriptions of Toronto’s west end  written up on Wikipedia can be interesting, for example this 1st one  High Park North which seems to exit just below the junction, no doubt if you live there you probably know the name. Yet isn’t this city split into too many neighbourhoods, it would seem that on a lot of issues all of the communities listed below would have common interests. It comes to mind that with so many neighbourhoods we may be losing the true sense and defining population characterizations of what is needed to produce a knit community with imaginary area dividing lines.
