Abandoned prison restroom
with long trough
off a low-traffic area, as described in John Cheever
's 1977 novel FALCONER
. To quote the author, this is where the inmates
went after dinner "to fuck themselves
." Themselves but not each other -- there were unwritten rules
. Looking at other penises was okay, but not into another man's eyes. Touching another man was not allowed, except for the shoulder. A grim place, not gay by any definition, and certainly not the fantasy one-for-all tearoom

Since The Valley
's award-winning novel Falconer
was located on an upper floor, the origin of its name was obscure. Perhaps the name was coined to reference the trench
- or trough
-shaped nature of the elderly urinal
-- "Where's Harry?"
-- "He went to The Valley
-- 'When do you think he'll be back in our wing?"

noun. short for "The San Fernando Valley", an section of the City of Los Angeles, touching the north/west border of LA county. population 2.5mil (approx).
the closer to the edges of the valley you get (the hills), the nicer (more expensive) the property is. the closer to the center of the valley you get (Reseda, Van Nuys, etc), the more ghetto it gets.
The valley used to be agricultural (1930-50's) then became a suburb, then more recently has become more industrial and is becoming more urban.
Home to the largest Porn industry in the world (see chatsworth
), the worlds most used road (the 101
freeway) and so much more. The valley is said to be where the excessive use of the word "like" first originated, but the rest of teen america seems to have picked that up now too.
see also "SFV" or "818"
L.A. people constantly bad mouth the valley, but every time it tries to become it's own city, they vote that shit down, cus they know how much they need the bundles of money the SFV brings in to keep their over-populated schools, over-used roads and everything else running
the valley is about 100x better than the OC. in the valley you're never more than 10mins from a chill smoking spot (the hills). most of the OC doesnt even have hills.
A place where it is impossible to go anywhere without running into someone you know. The girls are the sluttiest. Make one phone call, and you can have any drug within ten minutes. The drinking age is fifteen. Parties every weekend. No such thing as relationships. Everyone is in a gang or a crew. Trends come fast, and go even faster. Most importantly, it's what I call home.
The valley is a horrible place that I love & call my home.
depending on where you go, you can find a run-down shack with 11 hispanic kids living alone, right next to a gated mansion worth $3 million. every night someone is running from the cops,being followed by a helicopter. ambulances are constantly blaring, and if you listen carefully, you can hear gunshots in the distance. and even though its so dangerous to live here, houses are expensive as all hell. one never knows what to expect when you live around here.
it may not be new york city, but its certainly interesting.
The Porn Capital of the world, but for many people that live there; that's nothing but old news. People in the Valley don't consider themselves living in The City of Los Angeles (smelLA) but in the San Fernando Valley. Outsiders believe that the SFV is just populated by white people, however the eastside is heavily dominated by hispanics (Give it a couple of years and the westside too)
On the southside of the Valley, one can find many shopping centers, porn studios, a city within a city ... and mostly populated by white people. This is the place were you can find them "Valley girls"..
In the westside many neighborhoods are dominated by white people, excluding Canoga park. Other then the malls and movie theater.. theres really nothing to do. The westside is filled with stuck up girls, rich sluts trying to keep it lowkey, however the valleys pretty small so eventually word gets around. One can also find a large population of Asians and Arabians.
In the Eastside, Evil side by far..
Home to Gansters and hoes. The Eastide is home to many "G" neighboorhoods such as Pacoima, Sylmar, Panorama, North Hollywood, Sun Land, Lake View, Van Nuys, and the city of San Fernando. The Eastside is populated mostly by mexicans. Black people are scattered everywhere in the valley but mostly found in the neiborhood of Lake View, nevertheless some black people found their way down into the city of Pacoima, increasing gang violance.
Someone from SmelLA: Where you from???
Someone from the Valley: Fuckyou homie, This is the valley, Big Bad Ass 818...
a quaint suburban sort of place, the valley is thought to be tacky and boring by the snobs who live over the hill, but those of us who live here know there's more to life than spending daddy's money on drugs and designer jeans. we take complete credit for the extreme usage of the word "like" that seems to have overrun the teen nation.
1) Like, yeah, I was driving the 405 in traffic, and all I could think was, "Thank goodness I live in the valley!"
noun. the region of wales, north of newport and cardiff. filled with pikeys
, basically low-class knob ends that love to fight for little to no reason, drink 24 hours a day and pop out new spawn every 9months (or sooner if they've managed to convince more than one girl to bone them)
a total shithole filled with shitheads.
