Encyclopedia > Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, California

Pacific Palisades is a district within the U.S. city of Los Angeles, California, located between Brentwood to the east, Malibu to the west, Santa Monica to the southeast, the Santa Monica Bay to the southwest, and the Santa Monica Mountains to the north. The area currently has about 27,000 residents. It is a very affluent and primarily residential area, with a mixture of large private homes, small (usually older) houses, condominiums, and apartments. It has a small central business district on Sunset Boulevard--consisting of restaurants, stores, banks, and offices--known as the "village." It also includes some large parklands and many hiking trails. Palisades Charter High School serves the neighborhood. It is known as "Where The Mountains Meet the Sea." Notable shops in the village include PaliSkate, Benton's Sporting Goods, Mort's Palisades Deli (now closed, but re-opening as the Village Pantry) and Village Books on Swarthmore Street.

History

In 1911, film director Thomas Ince created his Western film factory Inceville, which at its peak employed nearly 600 people. A decade later, the Rev. Charles H. Scott and the Southern California Methodist Episcopal Church bought the land; in 1922, Scott founded Pacific Palisades, envisioning an elaborate religious-intellectual commune. Believers snapped up choice lots and lived in tents during construction. By 1925, the Palisades had 100 homes. In one subdivision, streets were named for Methodist missionaries. The tents eventually were replaced by cabins, then by bungalows, and ultimately by multimillion-dollar homes with priceless views. Thomas Harper Ince (November 6, 1882–November 20, 1924) was an American film director. ... The Methodist movement is a group of denominations of Protestant Christianity. ...


For many decades there was a virtual ban on drinking in the district, a Chinese restaurant called House of Lee's conspicuously holding the only liquor license. The Presbyterian Church originally owned a conference center in Temescal Canyon before it was sold to become Temescal Gateway Park. Will Rogers owned a large ranch adjoining the Palisades in Rustic Canyon, now also a state park, and helped to attract movie stars to the area. It has been home to a number of intellectuals and actors, including Aldous Huxley, Thomas Mann, Emil Ludwig, Oskar Homolka, Grete Mosheim and Vicki Baum. Others such as Bertolt Brecht lived in the area's outskirts. Charles Laughton and Elsa Lanchester were known for their hospitality. Steven Spielberg currently has a home there, and two California governors, Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, lived in the district for many years, although at different times. Music producer and song writer Jerry Goldstein also lives in Pacific Palisades. Author Henry Miller and poet Maya Angelou also lived in Pacific Palisades.

The most well-known landmark in the Palisades is J. Paul Getty's Getty Villa. The museum erroneously claims that it is the Getty Villa of Malibu; however, it is a part of the Palisades, which is within the city of Los Angeles.


The only newspaper directly serving the Palisades is the Palisadian-Post. The community was served by two papers until they merged in the 1970s. The papers, The Palisades Post and the Palisadian, became the Palisadian-Post. Unlike most weeklies on the westside of Los Angeles, the Post is subscription-based. The paper's Web site is www.palisadespost.com. The paper is owned by the Small Newspaper Group, a midwestern media chain. The Small family purchased the Post from longtime owner/operators the Browns in the early 1980s. Roberta Donahue is the publisher and Bill Bruns is the paper's managing editor.


The most important civic group within the Palisades is the Pacific Palisades Community Council. That council was the model upon which the city of Los Angeles modeled its Neighborhood Council system. The council usually meets twice each month to discuss a wide range of issues that affect its residents. The council has rejected city offers to become an official part of the city, preferring its independent, non-aligned status. Among the main reasons that Council members cite is the fear that it will lose the power to sue the city.

The book was about members of one of Palisades High School's early graduating classes and how their once-privileged lives turned out years later, often disastrously. The book, by the son of novelist Irving Wallace, namely author David Wallechinsky, and his "Pali" classmate, film critic Michael Medved, was replete with "no-holds barred" profiles of many of the favorite long-time teachers of the school, including English teachers Miss Jean O'Brien and Mrs. Gilbert (aka "Mama G"), and history teacher Mr. Johnson. More timely was the detailed look the book described Pacific Palisades as a microcosm of America during the tumultuous Summer of Love-era. The success of the book later inspired a short-lived television docudrama-style series.
