Default What is considered Northern LA

Hi Guys,

I was wondering what areas was considered Northern LA and What are the nicer areas in the northern part of LA.

P.S. my sister is moving to LA relocating due to her job next year and the only thing they have told her was it's in the northern part of LA. I know that sounds weird but that's how her job works they tell you things at the last minute.

Thnx Guys,

northern LA is either the San Fernando Valley if you are referring to the city of LA or the Antelope and Santa Clarita Valleys if you are referring to the county of LA. However, no one in LA actually uses the term "northern LA".

Someone's relocating to L.A. next year to an undisclosed job location? And that's reasonable? Who pays for a move back if the gig doesn't work out?

Especially since you don't know if they are referring to the city or the county.

Agree that the southeast San Fernando valley [North Hollywood\Burbank], Glendale\ Eagle Rock\Mt Washington\Highland Pk\Monticeito Heights are considered north Los Angeles.

Northeastern L.A. is Mount Washington, Cypress Park, Garvanza, Hernon, Monterrey Hills, Highland Park, Lincoln Heights, Montecito Heights, El Sereno, Eagle Rock and often included are Glendale, Pasadena, South Pasadena, Alhambra and depending on who you talk to (also) Echo Park, Silverlake and Los Feliz.

I've never heard anyone using the term "Northern L.A." so I'm not sure what she means.

The most Northern part of LA the city would be Woodland Hills if you are going up the 101 or North Hills if you are going up the 5. The most Northern of LA county would be Thounsand Oaks (again up 101) and Palmdale going up the 5. Though I'm not 100% about the 5. The person who said that to you doesn't know LA. If they did, they never would have said "Northern LA" Just like every distance is measured in time rather than miles.

i seem to recall that you said previously that you thought your sister was going to be working in orange county, which is south of LA, not north. is there some reason you can't pin her down on a location? if she is relocating for her current employer, she must know where in the LA area their facilities are based.

No disrespect but Thousand Oaks is not in Los Angeles Co but rather Ventura Co [Conejo Valley]. Woodland Hills is not in the city of LA but in the western-most San Fernando Valley. Areas north like Chatsworth\ Granada Hills over to San Fernando would be north metro LA but only San Fernando is actually in the city of Los Angeles.

To find north look toward Mt Wilson [above Pasadena]. The coastline from Port Hueneme/ Point Mugu turns east & like Santa Barbara, the landmass faces south until Santa Monica [and again from Rancho Palos Verdes to Long Beach.
