The temperatures in the summer are quite hot. It's hard to beat the weather the rest of the year, whether you're in a more affluent area or not.
In The Big Lebowski the Dude's car is discovered "lodged against an abutment" in Van Nuys.

it's the kinda place you hear about in movies or TV shows set in LA, but would never visit as a tourist, unless you had family there, or were visiting LA for a very long time.

Not Van Nuys, no...

A tourist might stay at the Beverly Garland Hotel in North Hollywood. There's really nothing in North Hollywood itself but it's right next to Universal City and Universal Studios, and just through the Cahuenga Pass from Hollywood, and next to Burbank, where Warner Brothers Studios and Disney Studios and NBC Studios are.

I can attest to having met with Tinsel on more than one occasion (though it's been a while) in The Valley. To politicize fires is weird ....I met a woman from the Sherman Oaks end of things who was on 'Voluntary Evacuation' last week. Turned out she'd survived the Las Vegas shooting and wasn't all that upset about evacuating because she was alive, and everything.
