Founded in 1887, the city of Glendale is conveniently located close to downtown Los Angeles, Burbank Airport, and several area attractions. It is the third largest city in Los Angeles County spanning more than thirty square miles with a population of nearly 200,000 people. Dramatic office towers, top-name hotels, and the nationally recognized Glendale Galleria shopping center define its unique downtown area.  Within a seven-block area, Glendale's downtown offers fabulous restaurants, an array of specialty stores, an authentic farmer's market, movie theatres, nightclubs and live-performance venues.

 

The city of Glendale is divided into 34 neighborhoods, which are delineated by streets, washes, and mountain ridges. Each neighborhood has a unique history and character and as these neighborhoods developed, they combined to form the City of Glendale as we know it today. To help maintain the small town feel, many have their own neighborhood business and shopping districts as well.

Community spirit is strong as residents reflect a tremendous interest in non-profit causes, city improvements and educational issues. Neighborhoods are clean, business districts are built smartly and social amenities are abundant.  Glendale is ethnically diverse and rich in cultural heritage.

 

Glendale is home to the real estate communities of the Verdugo Woodlands, Rossmoyne area, Chevy Chase and Glenoaks Canyon, and Cumberland Heights and are located in the zip codes of 91201, 91202, 91203, 91204, 91205, 91206, 91207, 91208.
