Queen West = St. Laurent.

Could Bloor west of Yorkville be construed as a St-Denis analogue? Totally different vernacular, but some similar vibes in sections. Or maybe the Danforth?
I don't think there's an exact analogue to Mile End, but the closest would probably be Trinity-Bellwoods and Parkdale.
The Junction is kinda like St-Henri.
