It is full of farms and suburbs. Most people who live in the valley came from the bay and work in the bay. About 6.5 million people live in the valley and it is the fastest growing area of California.
The valley is completely surrounded by mountains, resulting in hella smoggy and hot conditions in the summer. If wildfires start in the mountains then a thick fog of smoke settles in the valley. In the winter it rains all the time and the fog gets so thick you literally can't see your feet if you are standing.
The valley cities are mostly crowded and have nothing but shopping centers and houses. Kids in the valley like to go to parties and concerts. It doesnt matter what day of the week it is, you can most likely find a party or concert somewhere.
Kids from the valley like to represent. If you ask them where they are from they will most likely say "the valley" or their area code, like "the 209".
Guy 2: "I'm from the valley"
Guy 1: "That's sick, your from LA?"
Guy 2: "Nah dude, the valley. You know, the 209 fool!"
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"
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.
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 the Valley: Fuckyou homie, This is the valley, Big Bad Ass 818...
