who’s who in Toluca Lake (LA)?

So I’d never heard of Toluca Lake, a neighborhood of Los Angeles until about a month ago when my brother and his family moved there. Now I’m noticing it more – along with all things L.A. – and according to the latest issue of People Mag – Miley Cyrus lives there. Golly. And fun fact: The oldest Bob’s Big Boy in America is just across the border in Burbank! (Wonder how it stacks up against the Big Boy of our youth in Royal Oak, Michigan?)

Decided to see what other celebs have lived there and here’s what the internet tells me – I’m pretty sure some of these people are no longer alive (Frank Sinatra, Lawrence Welk?):

    Quite a list! I heard Steve Carrell still lives here – a couple blocks away.
