Overview of North Hollywood
Rich with history from the motion picture industry and located in the San Fernando Valley, North Hollywood (affectionately called NoHo by locals) is one of the major neighborhoods that make up the greater Los Angeles area. An ethnically diverse and artsy community, it is no surprise that so many are looking for affordable North Hollywood apartments for rent.
Living in North Hollywood, CA
American culture would never be the same after California was granted statehood right in the heart of North Hollywood in 1847 in Campo de Cahuenga (now Cahuenga Field) after a war between Mexico and the United States. Thirteen years later, the entire southern half of the San Fernando Valley was bought by I.N. Van Nuys for $115,000 for farmland. Little did he know then that this would become one of the most iconic neighborhoods in the world 100 years later. After 10 farming families moved to what was then called Lankershim in 1888, the small community began to grow.
After the Mulholland Aqueduct opened in 1913, Los Angeles experienced an overwhelming boom, and many in the motion picture arts began moving to what was slowly being called "Hollywoodland" in the early 20th century. However, it was still mainly wheat fields and fruit orchards until the 1950s, when suburban sprawl took over the Los Angeles area and San Fernando's agricultural community was no more. Universal City took over a large chunk of land in the area and became the largest film factory in the world, and Valley Plaza became a large shopping hub.
In the past 30 years, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has made its home in North Hollywood. Famous for the Oscar Awards, this gave rise to the now famous NoHo Arts District, a trendy neighborhood that has grown rapidly due in part to the CRA project that began in 2000.
