Northridge Employment Attorneys
Northridge is one of the larger neighborhoods in the City of Los Angeles. It is situated in the northwest part of the San Fernando Valley and is home to more than 60,000 Angelenos. Administratively Northridge is divided into three sections: Northridge West, Northridge East, and Northridge South. It covers approximately nine square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 91324, 91325, 91326, and 91343. As with many towns before it, the development of Northridge began with the arrival of the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1874. The Southern Pacific ran a railroad track “diagonally across the Valley floor from Burbank to Chatsworth that became the coastal route up California”. (Valley Observed). Coinciding with a valley-wide drought, stations were set up along the way to provide water for the cattle (Roderick). In 1914, water from William Mulholland’s aqueduct system was diverted to the San Fernando Valley, where he owned a ranch between Chatsworth and Northridge (then known as Zelzah). The story of land grabs and the leeching of water from Owen’s Valley through the San Francisquito Canyon was to become infamous, with accusations of a conspiracy leveled in the film Chinatown. But for the valley, it meant a reliable supply of water and the main crop of Northridge changed from grains such as wheat to citrus and walnuts. On Nov. 1, 1938 the community of North Los Angeles, once known as Zelzah, changed its name once again to Northridge. Northridge was known as “the horse capitol of the West” and became a popular place for movie stars to build their ranches. The landscape of Northridge as we know it today began with the end of World War II. Returning veterans were looking for the suburban dream, and land developers were determined to provide it. Tract housing began replacing orange groves. By 1960, the population had grown to 850,000 Inadequate streets, sewers, public transportation and other basics such as telephones and grocery stores could not keep up with the expansion. The loss of the Pacific Rail (Red Car) line added to the traffic congestion. Today, Northridge is a vibrant community, and is home to the California State University at Northridge, the Northridge Hospital, the Northridge Mall, and many other attractions.
