Y@Eglinton N to Blythwood is the best kept secret in Toronto. It's better than queen w in many regards (minus groovy for shoes) and you certainly don't have to deal with so many suburbanites. Stylish rich conservative Torontonians need only apply: I kinda like them!
Second best Yonge St strip: Roxborough to St Clair (but especially south of the RR tracks.)
Third: @night the bloor to college area isn't too bad for eating and people watching. South of Queen for architecture but not much else.
The rest: blah much of it could be bulldozed (those 1950's and onward one story shops.)
Yorkville is great for people watching--shopping is a letdown 'cause it reminds me how boring it is to wear "labels." And really are there any great restaurants in Yorkville?
I shall soon be working at the Hazelton--the loser with the laptop trading NG futures shall be me Look for the famous brown shaggy suit....
