Written by

noho arts district cultural capital north  hollywood

Editor's Note: recently gave a tour to 42 international media delegates (sponsored by LA, Inc.). Izzy may be right - NoHo is becoming a "Culture Capital."

Ask anyone and they will tell you that the North Hollywood region of Los Angeles is an area steeped with a rich, vibrant history and culture that is completely its own. With a population nearing eighty thousand citizens, the aptly named NoHo district is never short of things to do, nor is it short of people willing to do them – the area is rife with establishments dedicated to some of the finer pursuits in life: music and theatre.

Newly Published Author Demonstrates a New Zest for Life in Her 80s

Sylvia Blackwell NoHo Senior Arts Colony author

There comes a point in many of our lives where we begin to wonder if our best years are behind us. Then, we meet a woman like Sylvia Blackwell, and we’re reminded that life’s possibilities are limitless at any age.

At 75 years old, Blackwell packed up her life in Philadelphia and headed to California. Now in her eighties, she’s reignited a passion for writing, became a published author, and discovered that at 85, she still has plenty of life left to live.

“I never thought that I could be this happy at this stage in my life. At 85 years old, you don’t expect there to be too many surprises left in store for you,” she explains.

Becoming an author and publishing a book on are included on this list of unexpected surprises for Blackwell.

She initially relocated to California to be closer to two of her four children and eventually found herself at the NoHo Senior Arts Colony Apartments.

This was a major transition, given that she had spent the last 52 years living in the same home and still had two children, and seven grandchildren back in Philadelphia.

It was in the midst of this transition that she re-discovered a passion for writing and decided to write her very own book.

Blackwell’s inspiration for the book started out as a way to connect with her grandchildren. She wanted them to find out who she truly was by sharing her stories, experiences, and life lessons.

The collection of stories, which was originally started as a keepsake for her grandchildren, turned into something much more, and Sylvia’s Story was born.

Today, Sylvia’s Story is published and available on, helping readers to “know and honor the lives of ancestors who came before them,” according to Blackwell.

She now spends her time at the NoHo Senior Arts Colony Apartments and looks forward to continuing her writing through the free creative writing courses offered to residents of the community.

“This apartment community is exactly what I was hoping to find. It is truly a diverse, remarkable place to live and thrive, and I am thrilled to start yet another creative adventure in my new home,” says Blackwell.

The NoHo Senior Arts Colony Apartment Community is located at 10747 Magnolia Boulevard in North Hollywood, California. Furnished model apartments are available to tour seven days a week, and leasing information is available at (855) 399-5381. Further information on the project is at
