Humewood–Cedarvale: Best separate this area into Humewood then Cedarvale. The Cedarvale ravine creates a distinct border between the 2 pockets. If you live in Cedarvale, you would likely walk up to Eglinton Ave west of Bathurst. Whereas in Humewood, home-dwellers would probably walk down to St Clair West where most goods can be bought and a United Nations of restaurants (some good some bad) can satisfy the palate.
The most significant homes are located on either side of the Cedarvale Ravine with many estate homes and a few architectural gems to be found. The middle class and the upper middle class will find plenty of homes a little further to the north. Beth Tzedek Synagogue and Holy Blossom Temple are 2 focal points in Cedarvale. They are large community oriented congregations.
South of the ravine lies Humewood with a mix of grand homes along mature wide streets and other smaller homes that want to be close by. Humewood Avenue, Pinewood Avenue, Rushton Road and Wychwood Avenue have some of the finer homes in Humewood. The neighbourhood is comfortable and has a lot to offer within a short distance including a variety of parks and many places of worship. Pay close attention to the homes around Humewood Park.
