We've been seeing sections like this cropping up on more and more niche networks lately, and it's in many ways a throwback to the online forums and bulletin boards of yesteryear. If you're new to the site, or just want to connect in a more social (and less thematic) way with other Leslievillers, here's a great place to do it.

Introduce yourself. Say hello. Tell us a little about you and your connection to the neighbourhood.

Have fun!

Hi everyone...Monica here. From a family that was born in the Kingston Rd and Dundas low rise buildings. I live in the Beaches area but am a frequent Leslieville shopper!! I love all the unique items that I can find in the stores. Shopping local makes me happy and keeps our neighbourhood alive!

Hi all.  I lived on the eastern edge of Leslieville for 25 years and recently sold my little house and moved into condo in central Leslieville. I've seen this area change from a very inexpensive, no-name area to "Toronto's Brooklyn", the hottest real estate market in the city and one of the nicest, most convenient and most sought after places to live in the city. I credit Tango Palace, Edward Levesque and the Leslieville Cheese Market with starting the big turnaround. I love our foodie reputation, though I hate lining up for brunch (won't do it) and dislike the cooler-than-thou shops that don't bite in to the neighbourhood. I'm so glad to see young families, artists and independent businesses here now.

Thanks Monica and Nancy for breaking the ice! :)

I'm a guy with a computer and a smoker.  

Was born up by Broadview & Dundas.  My Dad owned a business downtown.  Love the downtown.  I think Leslieville's large new buildings are not good news.  I think the Port Lands development is going to have an absolutely massive effect on the Leslieville.  I think we will never have snow again.  

I am new to the area...just moved into Leslieville.  I'm originally from the Canadian prairies and have moved around.  I'm looking forward to learning about the neighbourhood and meeting people.  My wife and I have a one-year-old baby girl so we're interested to meet other couples with babies.

Welcome to Leslieville, and to the site David!

Welcome to a wonderful neighbourhood David!! If you and your wife need a night out I am available for babysitting. :) I have wonderful references.

Hi Monica,

 

Thank you for the offer!  It will be nice to meet you someday.  For now, we're settling in and unpacking etc -- it'll be a few weeks at least before my wife and I consider an evening 'out'.  When we do I'll remember your msg.

Understandable. :) You're very welcome!

Hi,

My name is Alison, and I moved to the neighbourhood in September from Waterloo. I am a pianist and piano teacher, and have been playing the piano since the age of seven. I love to cook, and bake sweet treats and although I am a vegetarian I do eat fish and all dairy products as well. I also love all things crafty, and am a huge fan of musical theatre. Coffee is my one bad habit, but I have cut back significantly and it is more of a way for me to be social than anything else. 

I would love to get to know more people in the neighbourhood as well as what activities are available for singles on a tight budget.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use TheLeslieviller.com

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…
