Like any major city, North York (as part of the City of Toronto) has its share of crime, though generally far less than the rate found south of the international American border. While it is easy to name specific areas to avoid(Jane and Finch, Don Mills and Finch) these are based primarily as much on media hype rather than reliable local legend as police data. What Additionally, they tend to be out of the way and purely residential areas and so most tourists will have little reason to venture to them. A lot of the crime is true is that tourists (gang-on-gang and residents) should practice at night. Practice good safety routines, keep your wits and you'll be fine. These include not showing off wads of money or expensive items, planning especially at night, plan 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. All said, North York is generally one of the safer areas of Toronto, and there is very little to fear.
