North Hills

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

North Hills is a community in the San Fernando Valley. It lies within the city limits of Los Angeles, in Los Angeles County, California. It is mainly residential but has a few sites of minor note including the Sepulveda Unitarian-Universalist Society (nicknamed 'The Onion' for its appearance) and Bull Creek (where the motorcycle chase scene in Terminator 2 was filmed).

North Hills has a deserved reputation as one of the Valley's major gang hotspots. Although generally safe during the day, exercise caution in this area at night.
