Van Nuys is a prominent community in the San Fernando Valley, bordered by the 405 freeway to the West and Sherman Oaks to the East. The city is in the heart of the San Fernando Valley and home to about 100,000 people. The main street, Van Nuys Boulevard, is known for its car dealerships, its "Auto Row". Van Nuys also serves a function similar to a county seat for the Valley, with its Government Center containing a variety of federal offices and representatives. It has a number of notable locations, such as the Japanese Garden. This botanical garden boasts a dry Zen meditation garden as well as a wet strolling garden with waterfalls, lakes and beautiful greenery. The garden is a very popular spot and is often rented out for wedding ceremonies and the occasional Hollywood project (it was featured in Star Trek: The Next Generation). It has also been ranked tenth out of 300 public Japanese gardens in the U.S. by the Journal of Japanese Gardening. Van Nuys is also home to the Van Nuys Airport, an airport for private, chartered, and small commercial aircraft. Many Hollywood celebrities, politicians, and business executives are known to use this airport because it offers them convenience and anonymity. The airport is also home to the Van Nuys FlyAway Bus service, which provides non-stop bus service from the airport to Los Angeles International Airport. This allows travelers to park their cars in Van Nuys and not have to deal with driving to LAX or the fees to park there. Many Hollywood movies and TV shows have been filmed in Van Nuys, including a scene in Casablanca, an episode of the TV show Alias, the TV show Entourage, and much more.
