I wouldn't want to live right ON Yonge St. either. Or right on any major retail street - too much noise. You're better off living 300 feet or so off a major street.

Maybe the question should be narrowed to Toronto's 10 top areas to live when you don't have 5 million dollars in the bank

North Toronto/Davisville Village
Chaplin Estates
Plater Estates
The Kingsway

I wasn't thinking of condo living, I was thinking of neighbourhoods offering 25'x100' lots (or so).

Default Yorkville

You forgot to mention Yorkville.... very desirable but not very affordable.

If we talk strictly streets, not neighborhoods, I would say Palmerston Ave. between Bloor and College: wide, plenty of trees, nice houses, and it has that gate-like entrance that makes you feel special when you drive through. And, you are within reasonable walking distance of so many city ammenities.

Let's check Craigslist...let's see...ummmm...oh, here:"571 Palmerston, 1 Brdm, $1,490"...ouch!... let's see what else... oh, ok, here we go: "Palmerston and Vermont, studio basement, $945"...oh, well, I said nice, not cheap...
