Formerly known as Canada's only borough, East York has now been absorbed by the Megacity known as Toronto.

East York is home to residents from many social classes although over 60% of residents are over the age of 60.

The elderly population in East York makes good use of the abundance of bungalows on the lands, as well as the various seniors homes and social clubs. East York also has strong lawn bowling and curling teams.

East York is also known affectionately as Greek York by the under-20s as the community borders on The Danforth, a village of Greek cuisine and culture and many non-Greek residents can curse fluently in the Hellenic tongue.

The history of East York can be traced back to the late 1800's to various sawmills and breweries in the Don Valley. Todmorden Mills and the Don Valley Brickworks are just two sites that remain in operation for historical purposes.

East York is very much a barren place. If you do not need to be there, you'll never need to drive though it. Famous people from East York include John Candy and uh... nobody else.
