Beverlywood

Beverlywood

Beverlywood is an planned residential community on the Westside of Los Angeles.  Incorporated in 1940, it is an immaculate development of about 1,354 single-family homes bordered by Century City on the northwest, Cheviot Hills on the west, Palms on the southwest, Culver City on the south, Crestview on the east and South Robertson Boulevard on the north.  Beverlywood's principal thoroughfares are the Boulevards of Venice, La Cienega, Robertson and Pico, as well as Beverwil Drive and Cadillac and Cattaraugus Avenues.

Largely residential, Beverlywood is one of the centers of Jewish life in Los Angeles. Renowned Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal's Museum of Tolerance is adjacent to Beverlywood, and the neighborhood is also home to a modest Persian population (many of whom also adhere to Judaism) as well as a notable Israeli American population.

Almost all of Beverlywood's inhabitants live in single-family homes built between the 1920's and the 1950's, with the oldest homes in the areas near Beverly Hills. Beverlywood contains very few apartment buildings. Contained within the district's area is the Beverlywood Homes Association. The association is considered one of the most powerful in Los Angeles, having successfully fought off the 1960's up-zoning that occurred in other L.A. neighborhoods and, as such, homes located within the boundaries of the association generally sell for higher prices than those outside of it.  The boundaries of the association area are roughly Robertson Blvd. on the east, Airdrome St. on the north, Rancho Park on the west, and Cattaraugus Avenue on the south.

While overwhelmingly a quiet residential family area, Beverlywood does have a few shops such as the landmark Beverlywood Bakery and The Mitzvah Store, and enjoys access to a multitude of great dining establishments on Pico such as Tuk Tuk Thai restaurant, Sotto Italian restaurant, The Empanada Factory and Pico Kosher Deli.  In addition, The Grove shopping area at the world famous Original Farmers Market at Fairfax and 3rd is a popular destination for area residents.
