TORONTO — Social media expert Amber MacArthur, host of App Central on CTV, talks about Leslieville, the neighbourhood in Toronto’s east end that has a family feel along with an eclectic mix of art stores, cafes, restaurants, music venues and parks. Leslieville, which began as a small village in the 1850s, forms part of the broader neighbourhood of South Riverdale in Toronto. The area was built around the Toronto Nurseries owned by George Leslie and sons, after whom the community is named. Most of Leslieville’s residents were gardeners or were employed at one of the brick-making factories in the area. This is far from the case today, of course, but the ‘hood is still well known as a great place for young families, as MacArthur points out during her interview with Vacay.ca’s friends over at MyCityLives.com.
