North Hollywood

Home to the NoHo Arts District, North Hollywood is known for its quirky and historic community and is filled with some of the best art galleries, casual eateries and vintage shops in Los Angeles. Located less than 10 minutes from Hollywood Blvd., North Hollywood has a population of 77,000 and boasts an eclectic mix of culture, history, art and entertainment. The diverse neighborhood has a population that is more than 50% Latino as well as a high percentage of foreign-born residents and a median age of 30. With an immense cultural vibe, North Hollywood is the third oldest town in the San Fernando Valley and has a lot of historic homes that were built in the 1910s and 1920s. While some of that historic charm has been preserved, the enclave has also made some major updates. Filled with lots of cool little restaurants and a busy nightlife scene, North Hollywood is known for some of its staple bars like The Federal and eateries like The Idle Hour, Salsa & Beer, La Maria and more. The eclectic neighborhood is also home to the historic El Portal Theatre and more up-and-coming playhouses, as well as the Academy of TV Arts and Sciences. While there’s a suburban feel to the urban and edgy town, North Hollywood is a hot spot for young renters and buyers. Declared “the best neighborhood in L.A.” by L.A. Weekly in 2014, North Hollywood is also an extremely convenient neighborhood. It’s very freeway-close, making it an area that’s just a close drive from the beach, Hollywood and more. The neighborhood even has its own subway stop, where commuters can quickly travel underground to Downtown L.A. and surrounding areas. In addition to the Bob Hope Airport being just northeast of North Hollywood, the city has also added  new metro stations and is in development for more expansion.
