What does that mean? Well it means that you find houses, not just high rise condos, in the middle of the city. Lots of two or three story houses in eclectic designs on tree lined streets; something you would expect to find in a pleasant suburb, but not in a big city. It means that while you can find the big box retailers, most shopping is found at small individually owned retailers who specialize in what they’re selling. It means that the crime rate is lower than Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Hartford, Connecticut. It means that the grey granite buildings of the University of Toronto in the center of town bestow a collegiate atmosphere to the heart of the city. It means that there is a civility that extends to everyday encounters. That’s also something you don’t necessarily find in a big city. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is a small town. It is a city and the most prominent city in the nation. This is the financial center of Canada. The two national newspapers and the newspaper with the highest circulation are based here: The Globe and Mail, The National Post and The Toronto Star. This is home to 50 dance companies, 6 opera companies, 5 professional sports teams, 2 symphonies and the tallest building in the world (the CN Tower – over 553 meters high). This is the home of Harlequin, the largest and most prolific Romance publisher in the world. Toronto is the third largest English speaking theatre community in the world after London and New York. It’s the fifth largest city in North America after Mexico City, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. This is no small town. Getting around Toronto is easy if you have the STREETWISE® Toronto city map.
