    About

    Humber Summit is one of the northernmost neighbourhoods in Toronto, Ontario, located in the North York district of the city. It is bounded by Steeles Avenue to the north, Duncanwoods Dr to the east, Finch Avenue to the south, and follows the Humber River (east branch) to the west....

    In the 1840s, Humber Summit began as a pioneer community, centred on the grist and saw mills. However, as the city boundaries crept closer, the area evolved into a resort community, called Riverbend Park. It became home to a large number of Toronto residents who built cottages on the banks of the Humber River. When Hurricane Hazel hit Toronto in 1954, a large number of the cottages were swept away by the overflowing river.

    Today, Humber Summit is a middle class community. It contains a significant, well-established Italian community, but has also become the home for new East Indian and Asian families. The residences are generally semi-detached backsplits with built-in garages. Adding to the character of the suburban post-World War II 1960s homes are front porches decorated with cast-iron railings, and elaborate front archways.
