Leslieville is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada east of the Don River bounded by the Canadian National railway line and Gerrard Street to the north, Empire Avenue to the west, Eastern Avenue to south, and Coxwell Avenue to the east.
Back in the 1850s, Leslieville was a small village and most of the residents were market gardeners or employed in several of the brick-making companies in the area. While Leslieville has retained its small village characters of quaint stores and cozy houses, it has also been revitalized by studio districts along the Eastern Avenue. Industrial buildings and warehouses have been converted to lofts, film studios and production houses. Leslieville has been popular with the young professionals looking for a good value home that is close to downtown Toronto.
