Bruce Feng, determined to be fair to Los Angeles, pulls his City of Burbank van to a stop where Clybourn Avenue dead-ends at the eastbound Ventura Freeway. For more than five miles, the boundary between L.A. and Burbank runs down the middle of Clybourn, the main drivable street shared by the two cities.

The San Fernando Valley is 260 square miles of suburbia. Actually, make that suburbia on nutritional supplements. And antidepressants. With perhaps a little cosmetic surgery south of Ventura Boulevard, where the big money is. Or maybe - now that it's grown to more than 1.7 million people in nearly three dozen cities and neighborhoods rich and poor - the Valley isn't even a suburb anymore. It begins just 10 miles northwest of Los Angeles City Hall, sprawling west to the Simi Hills, north to the Santa Susana Mountains, and east to the Verdugo and San Gabriel mountains.

The last time this two-mile stretch of Burbank Boulevard in North Hollywood was repaved, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, Walter Alston was the rookie manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers and "From Here to Eternity" took the Oscar for best picture. And the two men who presided over Monday's celebratory asphalt-laying -- Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Councilman Tom LaBonge -- were both still in diapers.

The quiet stretch of Burbank Boulevard near Burbank's downtown could be a set for the movie "Pleasantville." One of the bungalows on this wide, tree-lined street is actually a homey restaurant named The Place for Steak. Little on its menu would have been too far out for the folks in Pleasantville. There's nothing fancier than Caesar salad and aged steak, mostly USDA Choice. A few cuts are Prime and carry a slightly higher price tag. But no price tag is very high.
