Overview of Glendale
When driving through the busy streets of Glendale, California, it's hard to imagine that the Los Angeles suburb sprawling over 30.5 square miles emerged from humble beginnings. In 1906, when the city was incorporated, it consisted of only 1,486 acres. As people began to take advantage of its proximity to Los Angeles, the city went through numerous annexations, and is now made up of 34 distinct neighborhoods.
Finding Glendale apartments for rent is the first step to discovering why this Southern California suburb has made a name for itself as a thriving urban center.

Between 1980 and 2000, Glendale grew significantly more than surrounding areas, and the population in 2010 totaled 191,719.
