Hi Jack,

You can find a map with the BH boundaries clearly outlined on the city's official website, http://gis.beverlyhills.org/

I hope that helps.

I always wondered why we use Beverly Hills, CA if we live in the City of Los Angeles and NOT the City of Beverly Hills.

I wouldn't mind using Beverly Crest, CA at all, but Beverly Hills, CA doesn't seem right...

I know people want to say "I live in Beverly Hills" because BH is one of nicest cities in the country but the fact is we don't live in BH.

Do you guys agree with me or can someone explain to me why we use Beverly Hills? (Again, I wouldn't mind Beverly Crest, CA at all...)

Thanks in advance.. I'd love to hear other people's opinions. :)

Does anyone know what that unincorporated area in the middle of Beverly Crest (apparently in Franklin Canyon) is? Is that LA County land that is not included in the City of Los Angeles for some reason?

"Beverly Crest" is an improvement over "Beverly Glen", but I agree with Lydia's comment. Why NOT use "Beverly Hills Post Office"? BHPO would cover roughly the same area as Beverly Crest. It would NOT include Beverly Glen, but that canyon is more a part of Bel-Air (with which it shares a zip code). And BHPO WOULD include the area on the north side of Mulholland, which has more in common with the canyons south of Mulholland than with Sherman Oaks.

I still don't understand why the LA Times won't use Beverly Hills Post Office as a neighborhood. You do know it has a definite definition and boundaries, don't you--the part of Los Angeles that carries the Beverly Hills zip code, 90210. This seems like one of the easiest calls but I guess the LA Times doesn't know the Westside.

The north border of Beverly Crest should not follow Mulholland. Beverly Crest includes streets off the north side of Mulholland that are only accessible from Mulholland such as: Clerendon Road, Beverly Ranch Road, Sumatra, and Coldwater Canyon Lane. These areas are part of the Beverly Hills Post Office area which includes most of the Beverly Crest area. Homes on these streets are not part of Sherman Oaks. The entire "crest" area along Mulholland is more associated with the Westside than the Valley. (we get the Westside edition of the LA Times, our mail is addressed as Beverly Hills, we are in 90210, etc.)

I used to live in Beverly Glen. One hidden treasure is the small group of shops near Mulholland on N. Beverly Glen Blvd. There was a great butcher and a couple of nice restaurants. I'd go up there at night and see Jay Leno, Eddie Van Halen, Robbie Kreiger, Phil Proctor, and other celebrities.

The downside is that traffic is horrendous during rush hour, and during off-peak hours, people treat it is a raceway. Living on the outside of a curve, I had my mailbox crushed a number of times by out-of-control valley-to-Sunset drivers.
