The Blake-Jones neighbourhood is a compact neighbourhood, located south of Danforth Avenue, north of the railroad tracks, east of Pape Avenue, and west of Greenwood Avenue. Some people refer to it as “The Pocket.” Also, some people consider it to be part of the Riverdale neighbourhood.
Homes in Blake-Jones were built mostly between the 1870s and the 1930s. Its streets are lined with trees, and many of the thoroughfares are dead ends, making Blake-Jones significantly quieter than other neighbourhoods in the city (in spite of the presence of the TTC Greenwood Yard). Although it might feel secluded, residents love easy access to downtown Toronto via public transit. Driving downtown is a breeze, too – it takes about 15 minutes.
Blake-Jones is also very ethnically diverse. On any given day, you can hear Greek, Somali, Gujarati, Czech, and Cantonese within the space of a few blocks. If you’re looking for cuisine from around the world, it’s right nearby. You can find halal meat, souvlaki, Chinese food, and burgers, prepared just the way you like them, after just a 20 minute walk. Although Blake-Jones residents may come from all over the world, they’re united in the love of their neighbourhood. The local residents’ association has launched initiatives to replant trees to improve the community’s appearance.
