Are we defined by Neighbourhoods?

When people asked where I grew up the answer was always North Toronto. But depending on whom you ask you get different answers.

The other day the Toronto Star published their version of the Toronto Neighbourhoods.

Really all it is telling us is how to further divide ourselves culturally – I actually  grew up in the York Mills area, which is near the Graydon Hall Area and Bayview Village Area.

What I would be interested in knowing is how each of the neighbourhoods compares in terms of sustainable development
• How many of them use public transportation? Active transporation?
• How accessible is the public transportation? (A bus that runs every 30 minutes in an area does not seem to be very accessible. But if you live steps from the subway line it’s a different story)
• Can the residents easily walk to grocery stores? Restaurants? Retail?
• How Many of the residents use a compost? Use their green bin? Their blue bin?

Not that I want to provide incentive for neighbourhoods to compete, but I would like to know how we can improve the sustainability of our city.
