Default Moving from N. Hollywood to Burbank

So....

After my first apartment stay in LA, I'm moving away. Well, about 2.5 miles away to be exact. Anyways, I was just curious what, if anything, will change in my daily life when I move. Since I'm still close to the NoHo arts district, will the people in the area really change? Better grocery stores? Will police actually show up? I know Burbank has its own Water/Power, same prices as LA's?

I know it won't be that different, but I like to know about where I'm living.

Hey KnoxTown:

If your experience is anything like ours coming from Sherman Oaks to Burbank, you will be pleasantly surprised.

We have found the people to be much more friendly. In short, the folks in Burbank are proud of the city and have been there a long time. Our power costs went down, as did our auto insurance premiums. You'll find yourself enjoying the myriad shopping on San Fernando, Empire, and Magnolia. In general, you'll find Burbank is "cleaner", a bit more leafy, and the police/fire are extremely responsive (so we hear). In terms of grocery stores, there's a Trader Joe's in Toluca Lake, Vons on Hollywood Way, Ralphs on Buena Vista, and too many more to mention. If you're in Magnolia Park, you will become fond of Handy Market on Magnolia and Buena Vista (Saturday BBQ is a tradition now in our household -- YUM). You also have a Costco off Victory.


Good luck!!

Not to rain a bit on the parade, but Toluca Lake is still officially considered North Hollywood. Burbank tends to be a bit more urban than NoHo. You'll notice that streets open up from 1 lane to 2 lanes when you leave NoHo and enter Burbank.

And your point is what? Toluca Lake shopping is so close to Burbank (and so removed from the NoHo core) that the difference is technical.

Urban? Disagree on this point. As an example, I see more razor-wire lined walls & littered streets in NoHo than Burbank...

I lived in Toluca Lake for years and its sits really on the border of both Burbank and North Hollywood. Burbank cops and fire department usually go there (Toluca Lake) to "hang out" but its not in an area where they respond to in emergencies - that is still LAPD and LA county fire.

OP, you will not notice much difference at all unless you were in central or north North Hollywood. If you're on Hollywood Way, you are just a few blocks east of North Hollywood anyways so you may not notice any difference at all except that you can walk to Portos (which is great).

Thanks! I'm loving Burbank so far... especially being close to Portos
