Liberty Village might have a bad rep, but it’s just the “cat lovers” writing bad reviews on the neighborhood because they’re not dog people. The Village is full of hot, young professionals and has a lot of great events going on like the “Mac & Cheese Festival.” 26K people have already confirmed that they’ll be shoveling mac and cheese into their mouths for three days straight and any neighborhood that hosts a mac and cheese party is in Toronto's good books.

The Liberty Village community has many different quirks about it and there are some things only a fellow neighbor can possibly understand or relate to. There might be a lot of dog poop around, but if you get past the lazy dog owners -- Liberty Village is a great neighborhood with great taste.

Here are 20 different things you learn when you live in Liberty Village:

1. You've found cigarette or vomit on your balcony in the morning and complained
