a native's eye on
Sunland Tujunga and North Hollywood
GRAND OPENING WEEK:
what this is
is all about
-CHANDLER BOULEVARD WORKOUT
The Railroad Right of Way east to west in the
San Fernando Valley has been Chandler Blvd.
I know the RED CAR rode it's rails and I myself
remember freight trains moving though it.
Gone are the RED CARS, gone are the freight trains.
Hello METRO Subway Station. Now, going to the west
is the Orange Line, a concrete busway with futuristic vehicles.+
Buswise, I remember sitting on noisy hot tin can buses,
that was when I was young in the late 50's.
Don't get me wrong, I loved those buses,
and the RED CARS that still were running
from Downtown to Long Beach.

Going towards Burbank this Railway Right of Way
has been turned into a community event.
Families walking, skaters, bicyclers, dogs...
Walkways, flowers, grass, benches
all line this form trainway.
If you go to the east most portion
it stops a block before Victory Blvd.
and you can still see a
stretch of the old Railroad.
-NOHO ART WALKWAY COMPLETION
I am happy to announce that Noho has just finished
our addition continuing the same
Bike and Pedestrian Way
from Vineland east to Clyborn
at the Burbank city line.
Many of the warehouses and
businesses that line the tracks in Noho have various art
painted on the building sides that used to face the tracks,
and they now line this new community walk/bikeway.

and did you know we had a Baskins here too ?

- STREAKING ST ON A HARLEY
Sunland Tujunga is not just a moviemaking town minutes from
Hollywood, but 'used to still is' a motorcycle maven's dream.
-"...more like thes"
Sunland Tujunga & North Hollywood
are the City of Los Angeles,
California in the U.S.A.
We also live in the County of Los Angeles
this is the evil maybe x-logo that has that
G-d reference, and other stuff of the devils.
The County has used for it decades, WHO KNEW?
We can always make fun of ourselves
as with the fake-logo for Kalifoana.
With this neighborhood blog about
these cities with unique
historys and lifestyles,
we will shed some humor
and truths concerning our
Los Angeles Megalopolis.
