The San Fernando Valley is one of the most diverse areas in the world. It is the northern section of Los Angeles, north of the Hollywood Hills. Much of the Valley is within Los Angeles city proper, but some independent cities include San Fernando, Glendale, Burbank, and Calabasas.

For all you motherfuckers who havent been here, STOP DEFINING IT. The Valley is not all rich girls who spend daddy's money. In fact, there is a huge ghetto here, encompassing a lot of the northeastern portion of the area, including the neighborhoods of Arleta, Panorama City, Van Nuys, Pacoima, and parts of North Hollywood.

Hollywood is not in the valley, but "Hollywood" is. Most of the major studios are here, including Warner Brothers, CBS, Disney, NBC, ABC, Universal and much more. In fact the actual district of Hollywood only has Paramount and the award show theatres.

The Valley is also the Porn capital of the world. many porn studios are in the southern aera, in places like studio city and sherman oaks. It is common to see a billboard for a strip club right next to an elementary school as well.

There are more drugs in this area than there are in the CPT or LBC. Fact is, even the rich kids do drugs. It is common to have done pot, ecstasy, cocaine, and heroin by the time they graduate high school.

Scene kids also populate the valley. It is comon to see a 14-year-old girl with three different hair colors and a mass of extentions walking down Ventura Boulevard (a major shopping street) smoking a cigarhette. And no one seems to care.

The area code of the Valley is 818. On myspace, a valley kid is likely to put 818 somewhere on their profile. There is an immence pride for the valley.

Bottom line, the valley is more than you think.
An arrogant person from elsewhere: The San Fernando Valley is nothing but stuck up rich kids spending their daddy's money on drugs while suffering from bullemia.
