LA aaroe
We know every celebrity neighborhood in LA inside out. We also know not all of them are flashy and opulent. Take Toluca Lake. It’s been drawing stars like a magnet since the early days of Hollywood, yet it’s still often compared to TV’s comfortable Mayberry. For the big names who live here — minutes away from the big studios — that’s exactly how they like it. In this issue, you’ll get a look at how and when it all began, and how even the new in Toluca Lake retains the community’s classic charm.
John Aaroe
In Place: Toluca Lake

Embraced by Universal City, Studio City, North Hollywood and Burbank, Toluca Lake and its quiet suburban charm have been attracting stars since the movies first started to flourish. It was designed as LA’s first bedroom community in 1923 on the former site of peach, apple and walnut orchards. And from the day it emerged, celebrities from Amelia Earhart and Bette Davis to WC Fields and two of The Three Stooges rushed to claim the close-to-work neighborhood as their own.
Toluca Lake’s dazzling history of celebrity residents stretches from legends like Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra to current stars like Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Sia, Meghan Trainor, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Steve Carell, Melissa McCarthy, Kirsten Dunst, and many well-known producers and writers. more »
