Bounded by Bloor Street West to the north, College Street to the south, Bathurst Street to the east, and Dovercourt Road to the west, Palmerston-Little Italy is one of Toronto’s most multi-cultural neighbourhoods. Known as a historical settlement for Italians along College Street, this neighbourhood has greatly expanded to home a large number of Korean and Portuguese residents as well.
Consisting primarily of residential houses and low-rise buildings built in the early 20th century, the major roads in Palmerston-Little Italy also contain prominent and diverse commercial strips that offer retail shopping, local eateries, popular dining, and several T.T.C. routes and subway stations conveniently located to provide easy access to the Downtown core.
Palmerston-Little Italy largely consists of highly consumeristic young and middle-aged singles and couples who enjoy the ambience, active nightlife, and culture of the neighbourhood. Included is the newly developed Mirvish Village in the north-east corner of the neighbourhood.
