The Riverdale and Danforth neighbourhoods lay immediately east of the Don Valley and are a desirable near-downtown area for both families and the creative community to live. With huge parks (Withrow and Riverdale) and three busy commercial streets (Danforth, Gerrard and Queen) the neighbourhood is well serviced and imminently walkable. While The Danforth has been home to Toronto's Greek community for decades, Queen East has seen a renaissance in the last 10 years with new bars, restaurants and galleries opening. Along Gerrard, one of Toronto's three Chinatowns continues on with a number of grocery stores, restaurants and a new Chinese gate welcome visitors to this Chinatown and the rest of the east side.
