neighbourhood profile: Lawrence Manor

It’s hard to believe that the neighborhood known as Lawrence Manor was primarily farmland until the 1940s, when the federal government bought the deed and developed a residential area.

Today the area remains largely residential and alive with traditional Jewish culture. Did you know¦ When Lawrence Manor plaza opened in the ˜60s it was the largest shopping plaza in Toronto!? Although it no longer can boast that title, it still offers a variety of outlets and stores catering specifically to the Jewish community.
