North Hollywood is a popular neighborhood in Los Angeles County, California. It is located in the San Fernando Valley and contains the celebrated NoHo Arts District. In 2000, the U.S. Census Bureau counted approximately 78,000 residents in North Hollywood and this number has probably increased since then due to its rising popularity. Like the rest of Los Angeles County, it is sunny practically all year round with the occasional rainy winter.

What’s in a Name?

The Lankershim Ranch Land and Water Company established North Hollywood in 1887 under the original name of Toluca. In 1896, it was renamed Lankershim before earning its modern moniker of North Hollywood in 1927. Its name is slightly misleading, as it is not geographically connected to Hollywood proper.

Famous Faces

Many notable people have called North Hollywood home over the years, including celebrity foodie Alton Brown; comedian Bob Hope; aviator Amelia Earhart; punk rock band The Weirdos; professional baseball player Brennan Boesch; and author Maureen Dragone.
