From the streets: What’s the best thing about Scarborough?

Observer staff fanned out across Scarborough recently to ask you one question: What’s the best thing about Scarborough? Here’s what you told us.

The best thing about Scarborough is that there are tons of newly opened Asian restaurants offering tasty varieties that suit the needs of picky foodies all across Toronto.

I like that Scarborough is so multicultural. I enjoy meeting new people and finding out where they are from.

I would have to say my favourite part is how everyone is a friend of a friend.

Personally I like [Scarborough] because I’m used to everything here and most of my family is here. Everything is generally cheaper here too compared to areas like downtown Toronto or Vaughan.

My favourite thing about Scarborough is the transit because in Durham it’s not really good, they come every half an hour to an hour. In Scarborough, [buses] come every 10 to 15 minutes.

Ever since I came to Canada this is where I’ve lived. I love Scarborough, it’s a diverse city.
