Grandview Avenue is named for its view over Riverdale, as in Fairview and Broadview. This block long residential street runs from Logan to Hampton on the slope that rises towards Danforth Avenue. It was part of Lot 13 granted to by Governor Simcoe in 1793 to Frederick Brown. The house at 56 Grandview, at the northwest corner of Grandview and Logan originally faced on Logan. It is one of the oldest houses, and possibly the only market garden cottage, remaining in the area.
