Scarborough Village (also known as Scarborough Heights or locally Markham-Eglinton) is a neighbourhood in eastern Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the south-central part of the former suburb of Scarborough. Historically, it was one of the earliest settlements in the former Township of Scarborough and was the first region of the township to have its own post office. Today, the neighbourhood is composed of private and public housing, apartment complexes, schools, a few condominiums, and strip mall plazas. The neighbourhood lies along the shores of Lake Ontario, specifically the Scarborough Bluffs.
The neighbourhood is located between Highland Creek and Lake Ontario. The officially-recognized boundaries are the Canadian National Railway tracks to the north, Scarborough Golf Club Road and Bethune Boulevard to the east, Lake Ontario and Bellamy Ravine Creek to the south, and Bellamy Road to the west. The major intersection and midpoint of the community is Eglinton Avenue East and Markham Road. As a result, many of its residents popularly refer to the community as "Markham and Eglinton" or "M and E" for short. There is a high concentration of low-income public housing projects along Eglinton Ave East from Bellamy Road to Kingston Road.
The neighbourhood is served by its heavily used Toronto Transit Commission bus routes 86 Scarborough and 116 Morningside connecting to the TTC's Kennedy Subway Station and 34 Eglinton East which further connects with the Eglinton Subway Station, passing through East York and North York. Other routes which run through the neighbourhood are 102 Markham and 9 Bellamy which both connect to Warden subway station to the south while the latter route connects to the Scarborough Centre RT Station to the north. The neighbourhood houses the Eglinton GO Station for express transit to Downtown Toronto and other destinations along its line.
Kingston Road, which runs along the southern portion of the neighbourhood, provides motorists an alternate access to south-western Scarborough, East York, and Downtown Toronto in the west and extends to Durham Region in the east.
