Bayview and York Mills, Ontario
York Mills is the name of an affluent neighbourhood around Yonge Street and York Mills Road in Toronto. In 2010, it encompassed the 4th and 7th most affluent postal codes in Canada. It is recognized as Millionaires' Row, alongside the other Toronto neighbourhoods of The Bridlepath, Forest Hill, Lawrence Park, and Rosedale.
Part of the area is also known as Hoggs Hollow, named for James Hogg, a Scottish settler who settled in the area in 1824 and operated the mill on Yonge Street at the Don River north of the Town of York (now Toronto), by his sons John and William in 1856. Another portion is named St. Andrew-Windfields. St. Andrew-Windfields most famous resident was the popular Canadian Philanthropist E. P. Taylor who left Canada towards the latter years of his life and donated Parkland (now Windfields Park) and his mansion (now the Canadian Film Centre). Another part of the area known as The Bridle Path is characterized by large multi-million dollar mansions and two to four acre (8,000 to 16,000 m²) lot sizes. It is the most affluent neighbourhood in Canada with an average household income of over $600,000.
Although "The Bridle Path" is in fact the name of a road in the area, the term generally applies to the neighbourhood as a whole. It is bounded by The Bridle Path on the north, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on the south, Bayview Avenue on the west and Wilket Creek on the east. Few roads pass through the area, contributing to the area's exclusivity. House prices in the Bridle Path are varied, but they are mostly well in excess of a million dollars. It is a secluded neighbourhood, surrounded by the Don River Valley and lush parklands.
