Nestled in the shadows of the beautiful Palos Verdes Hills, in the southerly section of the City of Los Angeles, Harbor City is a community within the City of Los Angeles. As such, its public services are provided by the city: Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles Fire Department and all other city services. Because of its close proximity to the Port of Los Angeles and Los Angeles International Airport, Harbor City offers a choice location for business and industry.
Quality of life is, to the 36,000 residents, one of the most compelling features of the community. It is large enough to offer a full range of retail, professional and commercial services, but still maintains its wholesome "Small Town" atmosphere in which family-oriented activities thrive. In Harbor Pines, residents are nestled in the southern section of Harbor City, with tree lined streets. The Harbor Pines neighborhood reflects the small town atmosphere, cherished by many of its residents. Beyond the community boundaries, but readily accessible, are beaches, sports centers, cultural centers and several major southern California attractions.
