Map request[edit]

Someone should put a map of Brentwood, so we get an idea of where it is in relationship to other areas of Los Angeles 4.142.45.222 23:05, 11 August 2007 (UTC)eric

With respect to citations for Brent-Air Pharmacy, I'm afraid that I am not able to provide these but I can certainly give a broad overview - OJ Simpson and Marilyn Monroe are two. Others would probably mean law-suits! If I ever find legit citations, I will put them in. Cheers!


How could you not mention Barrington Street? Thanks - Sparky 09:47, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Indeed! Although I'm glad it was properly mentioned as Barrington Avenue! (I should know -- I live on Barrington!) --Diberri | Talk 20:24, May 28, 2004 (UTC)


"one of the most important districts of the Westside." Don't mean to hurt any feelings, but I can think of 6 more important westside districts: Westwood, West LA, Sawtelle, Century City, and maybe Venice. And depending on your eastern boundary, maybe Fairfax too. 69.235.195.21 16:44, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

You're right. Every district is important to the people who live there - we shouldn't presume to judge.-Willmcw 17:12, July 23, 2005 (UTC)

Lewinsky[edit]

Didn't Monica Lewinsky's parents live in Brentwood when she was growing up? -Willmcw 00:01, July 25, 2005 (UTC)

Her father did; as far as I know, he still does. I am not sure how much time she spent there, though, which is the only thing worth mentioning. This information should be available in back issues of the Los Angeles Times, if anybody has access. Uucp 10:14, 8 August 2005 (UTC)
Yes, her dad still lives in Brentwood. jengod 18:51, August 8, 2005 (UTC)

Spouses[edit]

Do we really need to mention all those non-famous spouses in the "famous residents" section? Uucp 10:14, 8 August 2005 (UTC)

Sepulveda Blvd[edit]

According to the Sepulveda Blvd article, it crosses through Brentwood. Wouldn't it count as a major thoroughfare, between Mullholland and the point where it crosses the 405, for Brentwood. (Otherwise it's too far east to be considered Brentwood.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.94.89.42 (talk) 03:43, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

VA dumping ground[edit]

Notable residents[edit]

undeliverable mail to O. J. Simpson[edit]

Do you remember hearing that in the wake of the murders (of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman), some people sent mail to O. J. Simpson in Brentwood, and it ended up going to the Brentwood post office in northern California and was undeliverable? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.63.16.82 (talk) 19:31, 5 March 2012 (UTC)
