|Royal York Subway|
The Royal York subway station is located on the Bloor / Danforth line of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). It was opened in May 1968 and serves about 20,000 people a day. Located in the Toronto neighbourhood called, "the Kingsway", Royal York is situated in what once was known as "Etobicoke" before the amalgamation of the City of Toronto in 1998.
Just outside the station is a theatre called "the Kingsway theatre" which has been around since the early 1900's still operates daily and shows matinees and evenings and runs current films. Currently playing.."Social Network." Incidentally I saw this movie which is a documentary about the founder of "Facebook." I almost fell asleep, but to most it has been rated pretty high this week.
The Kingsway borders the Mimico Creek to the west and the Humber river to the east. Like Rosedale, Forest Hill and the Bridle Path in central Toronto, the Kingsway is an affluent neighbourhood located in the west end of the City, with the average house priced at over a half a million dollars!
