Its so underrated, and it gets swallowed up by LA. Most people don't know what's there. It has a decent amount to walkable districts outside of downtown too.
Chrisla is very knowledgeable about Long Beach, if he's still around.

Urbanize LA/Curbed LA (before it died) has nice updates of whats happening there.

Good question. I was looking at them from Kenneth Hahn last weekend, and they had the appearance of being the tallest structures in CC now.

I believe they are supposed to be 600' tall, which is about 30' taller than the triangle twins across the street. Do they still raise a tree and flag at topping out ceremonies? Why a tree? Will both of the towers get a topping out ceremony, or just one?

Is Kenneth Hahn park near where the Baldwin Hills reservoir used to be, where the dam broke in 1963? That was some flood.

Exactly! It's a really great area, with panoramic views from Palos Verdes to DTLA.
