I value healthy and comfortable living, housekeeping, cooking (and, unfortunately, eating), sewing, academic and creative writing, and I am mad about driving. I am familiar with housekeeping and cleanness standards since I used to work in healthcare and hospitality. I'm a good human and also an experienced traveler: I have visited/resided in 12 countries, gained lots of knowledge, and do not want to travel anymore.
What my area offers (not a comprehensive list): Yorkdale Shopping Mall (in 5 mins driving or 1 subway stop) - the biggest shopping mall in Toronto and the fourth largest in Canada: brands, restaurants, currency exchange, cinema, cell phone service providers, beauty parlors, entertainment and other temptations. Budget quality foodstuff and necessities are available in No Frills (in 7 mins walk) - a huge budget store, prices there are 2-3 times lower than in other Toronto’s stores, especially in the downtown. TD bank branch is attached to No Frills and is open 7 days a week (free parking at No Frills); CIBC bank is near too. Wilson Ave / Bathurst Rd intersection is full of affordable ethnic eateries, bakeries, beauty parlors, clinics, pharmacies, various services; Starbucks & gas pump with Tim Hortons drinks. Costco & Home Depot. For night owls: big Metro grocery store is open 24/7. If thirsty or happy: a high-class award winner wine store Wine Kitz (429 Wilson Ave, 7 mins walk), a humble Beer Store at 322 Wilson Ave (2 mins walk), and LCBO at 675 Wilson Ave (25 mins walk or few mins by bus).
Further, the district is reachable by a C$3.25 TTC bus ride from Pearson Airport (save $60+ for each trip) and it is near the fastest and least occupied University subway line - seats in trains are always available in contrast with other Toronto's railways where subway lines are longer, have more stops and are heavily occupied. Subway trains run quickly and directly to downtown (22 mins), U of T (18 mins), Casa Loma (13 mins), York University (2 mins + bus).
Motorists need only 15 mins to reach Pearson Int'l Airport, 20+ mins to arrive to the downtown, and minutes to merge onto Highway 401, Allen Rd, Wilson Ave, Bathurst, Dufferin, Yonge Streets, and so on.
Thank you for reading!
