While Los Angeles' historic preservation overlay zones have generated bigger headlines and bigger controversies, Glendale has been quietly advancing support of its best period architecture, recently voting to make the Rossmoyne neighborhood the city's third historic residential district. The city granted the designation to 504 single-family Rossmoyne homes last month. The area, north of the 134 Freeway and just east of Brand Boulevard, is now Glendale's largest historic residential district.

Criminal charges have been filed against two men Glendale police say are responsible for a three-month garage burglary spree involving more than 30 victims. The burglars typically used bolt cutters to remove padlocks before stealing power tools, bicycles and other property from residential garages in southeast Glendale and the city's Rossmoyne neighborhood, police said. Investigators got their first break in the case on July 24, when two garage burglars were spotted and chased by a Glendale resident.

A brochure circulated by developers in the 1920s describes Glendale's Rossmoyne neighborhood as "within minutes of downtown Los Angeles ... yet it might be another world."

Doris McKently recalls the day in the late 1950s when she was in front of her Verdugo Woodlands home in northeast Glendale and a Buick crept around the corner, its occupants peering out in search of something.
