n. One of the 5 boroughs that make up the city of Toronto. A vast wasteland of run-down homes, dilapidated factories, and strip clubs. Rightly known as ghettobicoke.
The Jane and Finch area's pretty run-down, but Etobicoke is a close second.

The western portion of the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Etobicoke contains industrial zones, commercial areas, poor neighbourhoods such as Rexdale and affluent neighbourhoods such as The Kingsway.

The borough of Etobicoke, (pronounced: e-toe-bi-coe) known as a Township prior to 1967, joined the City of Toronto in the amalgamation of 1998. Etobicoke forms the majority of the western part of Toronto, though it should be noted that Missisauga, Brampton, and Oakville are all more westerly than it.

Etobicoke is a mixed area, with more affluent areas such as the Kingsway and Bloor West Village, and less prosperous areas such as Lakeshore and Albion.

It should be further noted that Jane and Finch, although a notable area, is NOT in Etobicoke, in fact, it is much closer to Vaughan.
Me: Etobicoke is part of Toronto.
Guy: Yep. This isn't really necessary because the definition was pretty long.

A great community filled with nice people, beautiful homes, great schools, and a very green, down to earth place. Home of the Kingsway, Humbertown, Ontario Place and Lake Ontario. Sure, there are areas that are more run down, and have crime, but what community doesn't?
Man, Etobicoke is such a great community.

Don't judge Etobicoke by The Park Lawn Ghetto or Jane and Finch.
