== Stay Safe ==
Like any major city, North York (as part of the City of Toronto) has its share of crime, though
generally less than the rate found south of the international border. While it is easy to name specific areas to avoid, these are based primarily on media hype rather than reliable data. What is true is that tourists (and residents) should practice good safety routines. These include not showing off wads of money or expensive items, planning your route ahead of time as best you can (to avoid looking like a lost tourist with lots of cash) and avoiding walking alone late at night in deserted areas. Enjoy late night events, sights, sounds and smells in areas with lots of people.
