NileGuide Expert tip:
This neighborhood is in the Hollywood Hills north of Franklin Ave roughly between Cahuenga Boulevard (eastern border) and Highland Ave (western border).
- Anyone longing for a piece of Tinseltown history should certainly spend some time here. Some of the most impressive homes in Hollywood are found here. All of the homes were developed in the 20s and 30s by Hobart J. Whitley, and remain in very good condition today. This was a mini-Beverly Hills of yesteryear, where stars like Marion Davies, Rudolph Valentino, Ethel Barrymore and many others lived and partied. Whitley, who had great admiration for Italian architecture, built these homes into the hillside, and dubbed the community an "Italian Hill Town."
