    my favourites are probably Markham between Harbord and College, as well as Palmerston from Bloor to Harbord. The whole cabbagetown area is very nice too.

    For a little further flung location, Beechwood crescent in Newmarket is full of larger lot houses with massive 100+ year old trees. Its amazing, and walking distance to the old downtown too.

    High Park Avenue is one of my favorite streets too.

    As a longtime Cabbagetowner I do wish our streets weren't as militarily straight, since it encourages cars to both transit through the area around congestion on Gerrard and Parliament and to drive too fast. My favourite residential streets are the curvy ones that seemingly give no advantage to those seeking to avoid congestion.

    We have an ugly-duckling house on a tiny, low traffic Cabbagetown alleyway. Sometimes I see the grand houses on Carlton, Sumach, Sackville etc and get jealous...but then I remember the traffic issue you mention, and remember we're happy right where we are :)

    Nice. I love the hidden away homes in CT.

    I suppose it could be worse for me. here's where I used to live, Killearn Road, SE6. Dead straight roads, and where the heck are the trees?
