    "to the north" vs "at the north"

    Hi,


    Is any of these sentences ok?

    "Montreal is to the north of Toronto."

    "Montreal is at the north of Toronto."

    Thanks,
    jc

    "Montreal is to the north of Toronto." Okay, but is it really? I'd have to check a map.

    "Montreal is at the north of Toronto." Nope, this one doesn't work, JC.

    Thanks,

    Why don't you just say

    "X is north of Y"
