West Hollywood

California is the most populous state of the United States. Located on the Pacific coast of North America, it is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is known for its pleasant climate and ethnically diverse population. The name California is most commonly believed derived from a storied paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by Queen Califia.

West Hollywood, a city in Los Angeles County, California, was founded on 29th November 1984. The city, along with Beverly Hills, is surrounded totally by the City of Los Angeles. According to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, which provides police services for the city, the entire residential population is just over 37,000, though, the nighttime and weekend population swells to between 80,000 and 100,000, with a high of up to 500,000 during major events such as Halloween or the Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade. The district is one of the most famous gay villages in the United States.

It is culturally very much a part of Hollywood and the rest of Los Angeles. Although most historical writings about West Hollywood begin in the late 18th century, the land was by now inhabited when the Portuguese explorer Cabrillo arrived offshore, claiming the land for Spain.

According to the United States Census Bureau, this city has a total area of 4.9 square kilometers.  As per the census of 2000, there were 35,716 people, 23,120 households, and 5,202 families residing in the city and population density was 7,335.1 square kilometers.
