“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
North Hollywood is home to many aspiring entertainers and filmmakers. Recent gentrification has cleared the area of crime-ridden trouble spots, and now small theaters, acting schools, and other arts-based businesses thrive. The NoHo arts district is concentrated at the corner of Magnolia Boulevard and Lankershim Boulevard, anchored by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Nearby Universal Studios is a major attraction that features a studio lot, theme park, and an outdoor mall called Citywalk. Adjacent Studio City consists of charming neighborhoods, quaint cafes, and stores along Ventura Boulevard. Laurel Canyon Boulevard crosses Ventura Boulevard, traveling through the Laurel Canyon neighborhood all the way into Hollywood.
