Terminal Island (located between San Pedro and Long Beach) is the center of commerce for the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, but the island’s history and most of its streets and structures are not easily accessible to the general public. This brief 3-minute video reveals the changing cultural, economic, and geographic landscape of Terminal Island. Discover a bit more about this important part of Los Angeles, brought to you by the L.A. Maritime Museum. The video is available on the museum’s You Tube channel in English and Spanish, and was grant funded by the Harbor Community Benefit Foundation.
