So this is what Mulholland Drive is all about. From here, north = the valley and south = the city. Or what one thinks of as the city. It’s technically all Los Angeles County.

Fun (and sort of scary) fact about the valley from Wikipedia:

In 2002, the San Fernando Valley portion of Los Angeles attempted to secede from the rest of the city and become an independent city of its own. The movement gained some momentum as many Los Angeles San Fernando Valley residents felt they were not receiving city services on par with the rest of the city. Had the proposal passed, the southern portion of the city would have remained as the City of Los Angeles, with about 2.2 million people. The northern Valley portion would have created a new municipality of 211 square miles (546 km2) with about 1.3 million residents. If the movement had succeeded, the nation’s most populous cities, at that time in 2002, would have been: New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia, and the new Valley city. The measure, however, did not muster the necessary votes for the Valley to secede.
