North York is a district of the City of Toronto. It is the northern most district of the City and it is bordered to the east by Scarborough and to the west by Etobicoke. North York is made up of many different neighbourhoods including Bayview Village, Black Creek, the Bridle Path, Hogg’s Hollow, Don Mills, Downsview, Lawrence Heights, North York Centre, Pleasant View, York Mills and Willowdale.
North York is a very multicultural district. In 2006, 57% of North York's residents were not born in Canada. Some of North York’s principle ethnicities include Whites, Chinese, South Asian, Black, Arab, Filipino and Latin American. Because of its diversity, little pockets of ethnic restaurants and shops have opened up all across North York. For example, at Yonge and Finch, you will find “the other Koreatown”, an area that has blossomed here. Delicious bagels and many Jewish delis can be found on Bathurst north while Little Tehran is a recently new addition to North York, north of Steeles on Yonge Street.
North York is also full of several wonderful attractions for both families and adults. There are two major shopping malls, Yorkdale Shopping Centre and Fairview Mall. North York is also the home of Black Creek Pioneer Village and the Ontario Science Center. It is the location of York University’s main campus and it has some of the City of Toronto’s best hospitals including North York General Hospital and Sunnybrook Hospital.
