GreekTown on the Danforth! GreekTown on the Danforth!

Welcome to the Danforth, this charming area of Toronto, known today as GreekTown on the Danforth!
Danforth Avenue in Toronto, Canada took its name after an American Contractor Asa Danforth, who was commissioned
in 1799 to built a new road. The history books tell us that he actually did not built it, but it was The Don and Danforth Plank Company
that built Danforth Road in 1851 and created, what was know then, as "a dusty country road!" Since 1988 Broadview Avenue is served
by an electric streetcar from Danforth Avenue south to Queen Street.. Originally a service run by a company Toronto Street Railway.
Streetcar service by TTC runs untill today from the busy corner of Danforth & Broadview Avenues.
