Brentwood

Brentwood is an affluent neighborhood in the Westside of Los Angeles, California. It is the home of seven private and two public schools.

Originally part of a Mexican land grant, the neighborhood began its modern development in the 1880s and hosted part of the pentathlon in the 1932 Summer Olympics. It was the site both of the 1994 O.J. Simpson murder case and of a disastrous fire in 1961. Brentwood is also home to many celebrities such as actors and actresses.
