Some city officials consider cleaning up Sunken City for public to be able to visit

Point Fermin in San Pedro is better known by its nickname, Sunken City. The area, off limits to the public, attracts thrill seekers daily.


It's the remains of a 1929 landslide. Portions of streets, sidewalks and Red Car tracks become the canvas for graffiti artists.

Earlier this month a woman's leg was impaled on the fence surrounding the ruins. This prompted Los Angeles Parks officials to remind the public: it's a dangerous and active landslide.

Some city officials have called to clean up the area and make it safe for the public to visit.

That would cost more than $3 million and most likely take away some of the debris that attracts people to the site.
