Steven Rosenberg has been a long time Van Nuys resident and neighborhood blogger for the Daily News. As of today's City Council vote, he now lives in Sherman Oaks and tells it likes it is from his perspective: "For one thing, every single person who bought into this neighborhood received a discount of sorts on their home by virtue of it NOT being in Sherman Oaks, even though it is close (and this is, for the most part, a fairly nice area). Now those who live here presently can reap a premium of many thousands of dollars if and when they sell (or rent) their home by virtue of their ability to write the words 'Sherman Oaks' in their ads and listings without the additional word 'adjacent' following. All this BS about 'feeling' like you're a Sherman Oaks resident, even though you live in Van Nuys — I didn't buy it then, I don't buy it now."
