I don't live in LA, but I've been doing some Google mapping, and I never realized just how HIGH some of the residential Hills(Hollywood, Beverly, Hombly, etc) get. These folks live in the clouds.

Yes. There are hills in Los Angeles where I was born and raised. Moderator cut: fixed it

Yeah, I didn't realize how steep the hills were, especially the hills where folks live.

They're not called the Santa Monica Mountains because they're tiny and gentle.

That's one thing that impresses me about LA. There are really beautiful locations, especially for housing. Look at some of the movies that showcase LA homes on the hills overlooking the city, just beautiful.

Where rich entertainment industry folks live. They're not terribly excited about paying top dollar for properties if there is either no spectacular view, or not close to the ocean, unless it's a brand-name place of which to claim bragging rights, i.e Beverly Hills.

And we mustn't forget the less than hyper-glamorous areas in LA that are hills if not quite mountains:

Mt. Washington: really nice toward and at the top but middling to rundown on the lower reaches.
View Park/Baldwin Hills/Angeles Vista: nice and near South Central (to some folks, IN South Central)
Silver Lake/Los Feliz--do not know this area well but have noticed the winding of the streets to deal with the contours of the land.
East LA has its City Terrace
Palos Verdes, though not within LA city limits, has its own fairly noticeable elevation differences and is very expensive.
