There were a couple of other points in the article that tripped me up, too. Like the one about two small mountain ranges. Yeah, I'd call the Hollywood Hills a small mountain range (the trailing end of the Santa Monicas), but the San Gabriels to the north are pretty good sized. The other was the line about newer suburbs to the north and east. What are they talking about? Porter Ranch? That's just a subdivision. Palmdale? Riverside? Not exactly new. I'd say if anything that the newer burbs are to the west (Calabasas, Agoura Hills, etc.) and the south (like far Orange County).

Valencia and Simi Valley, perhaps? Both are growing by leaps and bounds. Simi Valley is independent, but Valencia (the Santa Clarita Valley) is expanding very rapidly and located just a few miles north of Northridge (up the 5 fwy) -- and a lot closer than Palmdale. LA County, but not LA City.
