Los Angeles Neighborhoods: San Pedro

San Pedro Port in Los Angeles.

The first time I visited San Pedro, I drove past a Motel 6 when I noticed a naked man hanging outside a window two floors over the street. Pedestrians walked past as if nothing strange was happening. I concocted scenarios to explain the incident. Perhaps the man was having a clandestine affair when the woman’s husband walked in. Maybe he was tripping on drugs. Maybe it was a fraternity hazing ritual.
