We rudely hijacked the Opening Soon restaurants thread earlier today with chatter about what constitutes Leslieville borders or boundaries, so I wanted to create a new thread for the discussion so as not to further pollute Bob's thread!

Ah, surrendering the Port Lands. Interesting slant.

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

According to the City it does go from Booth to Coxwell.
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.
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 :)
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 :)
Fabulous! Now, just to lure some foot traffic (for pedicures! ...I'm such a PUNdit) this way now that the weather's so beautiful. And also to convince people to venture down the alley to our front door- it's not scary, promise :)

Carlaw to Greenwood.
I was thinking exactly the same thing :)

Interesting discussion. For sure the bridge at Jimmie Simpson is the dividing line for Leslieville and Riverdale/Riverside. On the east side I think Coxwell is the boundary. North and south boundaries are still up in the air. I had a mini argument a few months ago with one of the TD employees at Leslie and Lakeshore. He was very adament that it was located in the Beaches.

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.

In addition to Wiki, I believe the plaque in the Queen/Jones park references the original Village of Leslieville that comprises south of the railway tracks to the lake, east to Coxwell and west to Broadview. I have long thought our street signs should be changed to "Village of Leslieville" in our original borders.

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
