Description - The Vincent Thomas Bridge and a bit of Terminal Island as seen from Knoll Hill in San Pedro California.
The Vincent Thomas Bridge (built from 1960 to 1963) takes you from San Pedro onto Terminal Island.
Knoll Hill is a little league field now but was formerly more residential. This is where Ruth's house was in To Live and Die in LA. Amazing house, unfortunately it was destroyed. 😢
Terminal Island is a mostly man-made island and home to the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach as well as a Federal Correctional Institution.

"Great teamwork resulted in her receiving the help she needed," the LAPD said.
Also taken from To Live and Die in LA.
Early in the film Chance (the protagonist, an adrenaline junkie) bungee jumps off of the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
The Ocean Docks area in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was also modeled after Vincent Thomas and the Ports. Though they left out the bridge's signature curve. Definitely not something I would have done.
