East end and west end in Toronto: similarities and differences

Some differences between the east end (old city east of DVP) and west end (old city west of Bathurst):

- The west end contains a larger land area and has about twice the population

- The east end developed a bit later than the west end, maybe about a decade later on average (west end was pretty much built up by WWI; the Don delayed development in the east)

- The east end is more skewed toward SFHs, the west end has more renters and apartments

- Both have seen much gentrification, hipsters, yuppies etc. but the east end has a bit more of a mature population and is overall quieter than the east end

- Both were historically mostly working class, but the west end was more "white ethnic" from the 1910s through the 1970s and the east end was very anglo until that time.

- There's a smoother transition from downtown to the west than to the east

I love The Beaches district. To bad it's not on the ocean, though. (I can't help it, I'm from Vancouver, please excuse me)

Correction: overall, the east end is quieter than the west end.

Many would say it's the east end's best neighborhood.
