METRO L.A.'s The Source article "Car-Free and Car-Lite in LA: where to live" rates Los Angeles neighborhoods on being car-lite, minimal car use, or car-free, never needing to be behind the wheel (lucky). The list is based on a neighborhood’s access to transit, pedestrian-friendliness and bike access (using scores from (walkscore.com), local amenities and connectivity to other neighborhoods. So if you are in the market for a new place to call home, the NoHo Arts District is ranked #3!
Why? North Hollywood is home to the METRO Red line (we say the first stop) and Orange line (NoHo to Woodland Hills). The Burbank Bus connects our pals to the east with NoHo’s METRO and bus terminus. We also have the Chandler and METRO Orange line bike path that connects Burbank to Woodland Hills.
Here’s North Hollywood’s score:
Transit Score: 65, Good Transit
Walk Score: 86, Very Walkable
Bike Score: 68, Bikeable
So what else makes NoHo so special? The list is long. In a nutshell, it’s just one mile and it’s in North Hollywood – yeah, that’s the Valley. But this one-mile Valley neighborhood is filled with 20+ theatres, professional dance studios, art galleries, recording studios, boutiques and a myriad of dining options and venues that give us one-of-a-kind events.

Feel guilty when you eat junk food? Do you tell yourself that once a week is okay or that that greasy hamburger is good for your skin? My question is why junk food tastes so damn good?
Hey North Hollywood! Did you know that Sunday, July 14 is International Nude Day? This holiday originated in New Zealand when former rugby star and TV presenter Marc Ellis dared people to streak in front of Prime Minister Helen Clark. I guess there are many fans of nudity because in the past five years more than 30 countries now celebrate International Nude Day.
