Encyclopedia > North Hollywood

North Hollywood is a district in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles, California. It is home to the NoHo Arts District and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. It was formerly known as Lankershim, but was subsequently renamed North Hollywood in an effort to capitalize on the glamour and proximity of Hollywood proper.


North Hollywood, like most of the rest of the San Fernando Valley, was once part of the vast landholdings of the Franciscan Mission San Fernando Rey de Espa˝a, which were confiscated by the government during the Mexican period of rule.


Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery is located in the area, and is notable for its special section memorializing aviators.


Once heavily Jewish, North Hollywood today is extremely diverse, with large Latino, Asian-American and Middle Eastern populations.


Famous residents

Amelia Earhart was perhaps its most famous resident (though she was born in Atchison, Kansas, and probably died somewhere near Howland Island in the Central Pacific Ocean), as well as Curly Howard of The Three Stooges. North Hollywood is the birthplace of Jan Smithers.
