Subjective interpretations may vary, of course, but eventually a consensus emerges. Wikipedia's downtown Toronto is largely identical to the parameters set out by TorontoNeighbourhoods.net, for example.

Hamilton's official version is fairly common coin. Part of it is literal, based on the sloping topography from Queen toward downtown. Part of it is a reflection of the median height of building stock. And some of it is reflected in the fact that King & James is the city's literal core, the key compass point for the lower city's main thoroughfares.

There are residences immediately downtown. That red rectangle is home to a fifth of Ward 2's population. If you were to expand downtown, I don't doubt that the data would change.

In the spirit of east-west equality, run your sample from 403 to Sherman, Escarpment to Harbour.
