Anchored by a fabulous old movie theater but otherwise pretty much unrelated to that other Hollywood, this is a fun little neighborhood that could be easily overlooked if you didn’t know better. It’s usually thought of as a place you go through on your way to somewhere else. MAX Light Rail has a stop here, adjacent to an important nexus of bus lines, so it’s a key point for public transit. Plus, auto-worshiping Sandy Boulevard cuts right through the middle of it at a diagonal, and some of the resulting intersections will make you glad you’re walking rather than driving. But overall the streets are mostly quiet and the atmosphere laid-back. It’s a good in-between-things ’hood, close to several other parts of town, but Hollywood has come into its own as a destination in recent years. You’ll want to stay awhile.
