Greater Hollywood, Los Angeles

Greater Hollywood is a region of the central area of the City of Los Angeles, United States. It encompasses those areas that are a part of the Hollywood, Los Angeles, California district, or are adjacent to it and have similar characteristics. These are listed below.

Formerly a religious colony then an independent city, Hollywood was annexed by Los Angeles in 1910. Its name is synonymous with the motion picture industry; however, most movie production has moved out to neighboring communities. Tourists flock around Hollywood Boulevard and gaze up to the mountains to see the Hollywood sign. The last decade has brought in new life to the once-struggling parts of the Hollywood district with various developments taking advantage of the subway stations built within the past decade. The wealth of the neighborhoods here are strongly influenced by elevation with some of the wealthiest tracts in the country are up in the Hollywood Hills and gradually lessen to pockets of large working-class and transient populations further south and east.

Some also include the Los Feliz & Silver Lake area as part of a Greater Hollywood.
