North Avenue slowly rises through the middle of Altadena before it stops at the base of the San Gabriel mountains. The community is north and west of I-210, and Pasadena is just to its south. In fact, Pasadena has made several attempts over many years to annex Altadena, but homeowners in the unincorporated community have repeatedly rebuffed full-scale annexation, preferring for now to remain unincorporated and under the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County government. Altadena has 40,000-plus residents.
