Location
    (1906- )
    Founded by Burton E. Green of the Rodeo Land and Water Company
    Named after a news article Green had read about Beverly Farms, Massachusetts (switching 'Farms' to 'Hills')
    Nicknamed 'Garden Spot of the World'
    Incorporated as a town on January 28, 1914 (population - 550)
    2000 census population - 33,784
    2000 median income for a Beverly Hills family - $102,611
    Famed shopping areas include Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Drive and Rodeo (pronounced Ro-DAY-oh) Drive
    Backdrop for the TV series 'The Beverly Hillbillies' (1962-1971) and 'Beverly Hills 90210' (1990-2000)
    Featured in the films 'Beverly Hills Cop (1984),' 'Down And Out In Beverly Hills (1986),' 'Beverly Hills Cop II (1987),' 'Beverly Hills Cop III (1994)' and 'Beverly Hills Ninja (1997)'
    Weezer scored a Billboard Top 10 smash with the song 'Beverly Hills' (2005)
    It has an identity crisis because it is mostly engulfed within Los Angeles; even its famed 90210 ZIP Code lies mainly within L.A. city limits.
    It is not what one would call a melting pot of racial diversity - in other words, more white faces than a mime convention.
    Its stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue where Winona Ryder's infamous shoplifting misadventure took place, are elitist and snobby.
    Permanent residency is rare and there are more renters than home owners.
    In 1919, movie stars Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford built a mansion in Beverly Hills and started a trend for other stars to live there, creating an aura of glamour.
    Will Rogers was active in the city's politics and named the 'Honorary Mayor of Beverly Hills' in 1925.
    It became the first city in California to establish diagonal pedestrian crossings for some of its busier intersections.
    Maps to the stars' homes hawked by street vendors are popular with tourists, who swap stories of movies stars they thought they might have seen.
