  • Hollywood - The Place
    by Mike Rochelle
    May 2007

    Hollywood is a district in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A., situated west-northwest of Downtown. Due to its fame and cultural identity as the historical center of movie studios and stars, the word "Hollywood" is often used as another name for the American film and television industry.

         Today much of the movie industry has moved into surrounding areas such as Burbank and the westside, but significant parts of industries (such as editing, effects, props, post-production, and lighting companies) remain in Hollywood. It is a popular destination for nightlife and tourism, and home to the Walk of Fame and the Academy Awards. As a portion of the City of Los Angeles, Hollywood does not have its own municipal government, but does have an appointed official that serves as "honorary mayor" for ceremonial purposes only. Currently, the "mayor" is Johnny Grant. Since this is a non-elected, honorary position, Grant has held this position for decades.
