Today, Assemblymember Paul Krekorian (D-Burbank) officially unveiled signs marking the Valley Glen neighborhood along the 170 Freeway. Most signs posted on freeways in the East Valley generalize the area and say North Hollywood, whether you're actually in Studio City or some other community. "I hope these new signs will encourage people traveling along the Hollywood Freeway to explore Valley Glen and enjoy its businesses, restaurants and ambience," Assemblymember Krekorian said in a press release. Our Valley Glen restaurant recommendation: Barone's Famous Italian Restaurant -- it's some of the best damn brick pizza we've ever had.
