Etobicoke is in Toronto. Etobicoke (pronounced /ɛˈtoʊbɨkoʊ/) was once a city of its own, but it became a part of the city of Toronto in 1998, when the great amalgamation occurred. Most of this region's industry is located around Pearson International Airport, which is located in the northwest of Etobicoke. While most of this enormous chunk of land is single family-home suburbia, there are a few notable exception. The neighbourhood surrounding Islington subway station, at the intersection of Islington Avenue and Bloor Street has become a new transit-oriented centre, with high-rise condo projects and plenty of street-level restaurants and shops; the on-street shops and restaurants continue to line Bloor all the way to Prince Edward Drive. The most well-known and popular neighbourhood in Etobicoke is Long Branch, which extends along Lakeshore Boulevard from the Humber River to the border ith Mississauga. Due to its past as a separate city, this section of Toronto has clearly defined perimeters: the Humber River - which separates Etobicoke from Old Toronto - in the east, the border with Mississauga in the west, the border with York Region in the north and Lake Ontario in the south.
