In 1906 Glendale incorporated as a city, consisting of 1,486 acres; the city is divided into 34 neighborhoods that are delineated by streets, washes, and mountain ridges. During the 'teens and 'twenties Brand Boulevard grew into a lively, modern, commercial and entertainment street with banks, department stores, movie theaters and automobile showrooms, becoming the city's "Main Street". With population growing from 13,756 in 1920 to 62,736 in 1930, Glendale called itself "The Fastest Growing City in America". By the new millennium, Glendale's population was approximately 195,000.
