The Greektown is known for its architecture dating back to as early as 1910 , and for its number of Greek restaurants and stores. The area was one of the major settlement areas of early Greek immigrants to Toronto -- in fact, in the 1970s and 1980s it was considered to be the largest Greektown in North America. More recently, the area has experienced a wave of gentrification as higher-priced restaurants and bars have moved in, as well as a European-style public square (at Logan Avenue). Greektown on the Danforth boasts one of the highest concentrations of restaurants per kilometre in the world. Some movie trivia: Several scenes in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding were shot here.
