Third is a series.

This is Part Three of North Hollywood-Toluca Lake Patch's video series on Laurel Plaza and Valley Plaza. In we examined the history of the plazas dating back to the 1940s. In , we examined how outside competition from malls in Sherman Oaks devastated the plazas almost as terribly as the 1994 earthquake did.
Today we compare and contrast the NoHo Arts District with the plazas.
For Part Four, which will run on Wednesday, we will take a deeper look at the community redevelopment agency's and the J.H. Snyder Company's involvement at the plazas. And for Part Five, the final installment, which will run Friday, we will take a walking tour of the Valley Plaza with Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krekorian to look forward and talk about what the future may hold for the area, as well as what is being done to help the plazas right now.
