Description

Not only does this street designate Toronto's east-west split, it is also the city's longest artery. In face, Yonge is known as the world's longest street, stretching from Lake Ontario to the town of Rainy River, more than 1900 km away. Used as a trail by the Hurons, the road came to be an official passage in the 1790s. Today it is a beehive of activity, with businesses lining both sides; especially in the section between Front and Lawrence. One of Toronto's three subway lines operates along this thoroughfare.
