York joins forces with "University Heights" to combat violence

October 17, 2007

Jane and Finch, also known as Toronto's "toughest" neighbourhood, will rebrand itself as "University Heights."  The new identity will hopefully bring the community and nearby York University closer together, particularly in the fight against violence.  York's "Village" was built next to the university in an effort to reach into the surrounding community, and is "very much in step" with the project to bring York and the Heights closer together.
