The strip of Danforth Avenue traditionally known as Greektown has evolved into a diverse community hub of multicultural cuisine, shops and independent grocers. It is still home to one of the largest Greek communities in North America; street signs are in English as well as modern Greek, and several scenes from My Big Fat Greek Wedding were filmed here.
