Studio City

Studio City is an area in the San Fernando Valley, just to the west of Universal City and about 12 miles NW of Downtown LA. As its name implies, Studio City arose to support the motion picture studios with affordable housing for their employees. Some of the studio's biggest stars, such as Gene Autry, lived in the hills of Studio City (more recently, George Clooney). Studio City flourished in the 1950s and early 1960s and has become a trendy, upscale neighborhood with great restaurants and shopping. Radford Studios and nearby Universal City Studios are still major centers of film and TV production. Ventura Boulevard's "sushi alley" is home to perhaps the largest concentration of sushi restaurants in the Los Angeles area.
