South on the Harbor Freeway

Harbor NocturneHarbor Nocturne by Joseph Wambaugh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Classic Wambaugh. If you don't know where Pedro is you are not alone in the geographic department. Many folks don't know where San Pedro is or where the Harbor Freeway (110) actually goes. If you travel north on it you will wind up in Pasadena. Turn and drive south till the end and you either exit on Gaffey or Harbor. The characters in this story are from the Holly Wood Division and part of the action takes place in Wilmington and San Pedro. Wilmington and San Pedro both are located on the Los Angeles Harbor. Anaheim Street runs through Wilmington and several strip or nude bars are located on it between the wrecking yards and that is where the story starts.
