I don't know if this is much help but it wil bump your post so maybe others can be more helpful.

We went to a soccer game last week at Campbell Park which is southwest of Dupont and Lansdowne. I've lived in downtown Toronto since I was 8 and I've never been in this neighbourhood. I got a really good feeling from it! It wasn't anything fancy but there were a lot of people walking around, lots of kids running around, and a really funky looking corner store/cafe. There are warehouses along the tracks with artists studios and interesting small businesses. Real estate is so expensive downtown I bet it would be affordable around here. Just my gut feeling!

I live about 1/2 block south of the Junction, an area in transition.
While businesses seem to struggle along Dundas street, the area is jam-packed with resources for families. Housing is not getting cheaper, but if you go north of Dundas, it is still reasonable. There are libraries, schools, parenting and rec centres, public transit and grocery stores. You can walk to High Park. Plus we need all the families we can get! Come!
