"Best Spot in the Valley"

The Arts District and the Redline Metro are awesome - lots of cool spots to eat on Lankershim including Vicious Dogs (across the street from the Art House Theater).

Good parking and good rent. As good a walking lifestyle as you can develop in the valley.
Pros
  • Convenient location
  • Reasonable rents
Cons

"Easy Access on the 101 to Hollywood and West LA"

North Hollywood is a great option for those who like the feel of Hollywood or West Hollywood, but can't afford to be right there. North Hollywood's NOHO Arts District has been developed for the past 10 or so years and is the communities attempt at a walkable village with restaurants, and shopping. It definitely feels a bit rougher around the edges than West Hollywood.

The location is great right off of the 101 & 170 with easy access North and South. It feels more convenient than Burbank and other Valley neighborhoods East due to the fact that you do not have to fight East West traffic. Although...it does not have the well manicured and safe feeling that Burbank or Toluca Lake has when you are driving through. I think this is a main reason that North Hollywood tends to have a younger demographic. It has more of an urban feel for a Suburban location.

Rentals are plentiful, and home prices tend to be higher in the South West corner of the community near the 101 and Sherman Village.

"Transforming into a Metropolitan Center from a Valley Suburb"

North Hollywood has been going through a transformation slowly over the past several years. Mostly due to the formation 743-acre North Hollywood Development District and the subsequent NoHo Commons projects. The residential area around the red and orange line subway is growing with apartment complexes and the idea was to create a walkable urban village.The NoHO arts district was created in 1992 and is trying to emulate the feel of SoHO in NYC.

Home prices at the time of writing this review on average ranged from $350,000 to $800,000. There were some lower and much higher, but most fell into this range. Rentals are plentiful, but mostly 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The prices were in the $1,000 to $2,500 range.

The location is great in relation to getting on the 101 into LA or West Hollywood or other parts of the Valley. North Hollywood does not feel as manicured as its neighboring Valley communities like Burbank or Toluca Lake. It has more of an urban feel.
Pros
  • Convenient location
  • Reasonable rents
