Northridge / Porter Ranch Real Estate

    Northridge

    Northridge is a community in the San Fernando Valley region of the City of Los Angeles, California, United States.

    The 1994 Northridge earthquake is named for the place based on early estimates of the location of the quake’s epicenter. However, further refinements showed the epicenter to be technically in neighboring Reseda. The area was also heavily damaged in the 1971 Sylmar earthquake.

    Located in Northridge is California State University Northridge, home to nearly 36,000 students and resting on a 365-acre campus.
