🏆 The fun fact you might not know about Hollywood

Despite its celebrity status and famous sign, Hollywood is not actually a city. It’s simply a neighborhood in Los Angeles. Confusingly, however, West Hollywood is a city 🤷‍♀️ 

A screenshot of a message from Stylebot on Slack that reads: "Hollywood is a neighborhood in Los Angeles, not a city. Avoid implying that it is: “Hollywood stars will gather at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday for the Oscars." There is a city of West Hollywood, however: “The Standard’s West Hollywood location will close for good next week.”

You may know that the Hollywood sign originally read “Hollywoodland,” but did you know it’s been altered in other ways over the years? Temporary edits to the sign have included “Hollyweed,” “Jollygood” and even “Save the Pood.”
