The Franklin Village Neighborhood
Franklin Village, often considered a quaint little hipster ‘hood, is located at the base of the Hollywood Hills at the end of Hollywood.
The Franklin Village neighborhood boundaries are from Western Ave on the east. The southern border is Hollywood Blvd from Western to the 101 Freeway. The northern/western border is Franklin Avenue starting from the Vine Street entrance of the 101 Freeway and moving eastward to Cheremoya, then north on Cheremoya until the street ends. Then the northern border continues along Foothill Drive from Cheremoya moving eastward to N Wilton Place.
The Scientology Centre... You can’t talk about Franklin Village without talking about the Scientology Centre. At the epicenter of the neighborhood–the 5900 block of Franklin Avenue–is the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Centre International, a prominent seven-story building, which is now called “The Manor Hotel”. It is run as an actual working hotel for out-of-town Scientologists. It was originally the “Chateau Elysée”, a luxury hotel and apartment house intended to replicate a 17th century French-Norman castle. It was home to many of the most famous names of the 1930s and 40s, including Bette Davis, Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable, Ginger Rogers, Gracie Allen and George Burns, Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and many more. It was bought by the Church of Scientology in 1972 and is now a historical landmark.
The Franklin Strip... Directly across the street from Scientology Centre, is the Franklin Strip, a trendy shopping area with an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops. Birds, Bourgeois Pig, La Poubelle, are some of the oldest (and best) businesses on the Strip. The Upright Citizens Brigade is also located on Franklin Strip and draws plenty of people from outside the neighborhood.
