The Alphabet Streets, also known as "The North Village," is the neighborhood that borders the 'village' proper to the north of Sunset Boulevard. North Village is composed of two parts: The Alphabet Streets and Upper North Village.
This was the first neighborhood to be built in Pacific Palisades, beginning in 1921 by members of the Methodist movement. The streets, named after Methodist Bishops of the late 19th and early 20th century, are consecutively named beginning with A, B, C, D... hence the name Alphabet Streets.
The Alphabet Streets have the smallest lot sizes of all the neighborhoods in the Palisades, with lots ranging from 5,200 to 7,500 sq ft in size. The Alphabet Streets are within walking distance to The Village, and this area is characterized by its high density of smaller single family homes on lively narrow streets.
Upper North Village consists of a vast array of lot sizes, lot topography, and views. Many of these lots can range from 5,000 sq ft. all the way up to 40,000 sq ft with many being hillside lots. The New Palisades Village area has lots from as small as 4,500 sq ft to 8,000 sq ft. However the majority of the lot sizes are 5,200 sq ft or 6,500 sq ft.
