Well, Wikipedia is never wrong, so seems like the city has made an error: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leslieville

This I know from the BIA planning that had been discussed.
So while people here may try to define it as they see fit - it has already been defined.
Amending my earlier comment re: the eastern boundary at Greenwood.
In my personal opinion, Leslieville seems to end at the East End Garden Centre/TTC Yard. I rarely venture further east when out for stoll as Queen becomes more residential than retail after there and Coxwell's still a fair bit east (on foot anyway).
Ten Spot is totally in Leslieville :)
Why leave anyone out? I'd think we'd all want to make "Leslieville", more, rather than less inclusive - heck, if the folks out in the Beach want to start referring to themselves as Leslievillers (or "East Leslievillers), who are we to say no? Same for the folks in Riverdale/Danforth (aka North Leslieville), and Riverside/Corktown/Cabbagetown (aka West Leslieville).
The more the merrier, I say :)
I live on Coxwell just North of Upper Gerrard...since 1995...I used to call it the Reaches...somewhere in between Riverale and the Beaches...still do not know what it is called....Woodbine Corridor..but no one calls it that. Apparently West side of Coxwell is Leslieville....news to me...we have two dollar stores within one block...but it is changing and rapidly....thanks to all who have invested their business ideas here.
