The Town North Hollywood

North Hollywood is a diverse, eclectic community in the San Fernando Valley. It has everything from modest residential blocks to the NoHo Arts District. The neighborhood is home to the historic El Portal Theatre and a number of up-and-coming playhouses. The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is also located here. In addition to art galleries and craft beer bars, the area is also home to vintage shops and casual cafes.

The town was originally settled in the late 1800s, and its early years were characterized by agriculture. The region produced peaches, wheat, and other crops. Despite a devastating flood in 1938, the area continued to grow. The region also had several airfields during World War II. Once the war ended, many of the airfields became suburbs for returning veterans. As a result, the population of the area skyrocketed.
