Los Angeles is the most populous, with nearly four million residents. In the United States, only New York City surpasses L.A. in its number of inhabitants. L.A. is well known for including Hollywood and ranking among the global leaders of filmmaking, television production, and music recording. Long Beach, the second largest city in the county, is about one-tenth the size of Los Angeles. However, because of its location, it has been nicknamed the 'Aquatic Capital of America.' The Port of Long Beach adjoins the Port of L.A. It covers about eight miles of land and 25 miles of waterfront. The port serves as a major trade gateway between the U.S. and Asia. Long Beach is also well known for its nonprofit Aquarium of the Pacific, which features nearly 600 different species of aquatic life.
