Synonymous with Greek culture, and thus amazing restaurants, this avenue cuts through the heart of Greektown. It is essentially a residential avenue and home to many parks, schools and churches. At Danforth and Main, there is a GO Transit station, the Main Street subway station and the East Toronto Athletic Field with the Ted Reeve Arena. The Danforth ends, when it merges with Kingston Road (Hwy 2) at the Birchmount Park complex.
