Railroad and Northern Anchovy
A school of neon green anchovy and a fleet of bright blue railroad locomotives make their way across the street, increasing pedestrian safety with standout colors and large design. The railroad and northern anchovy are integral to Long Beach’s history. As result of the railroad’s construction, a real estate boom during the late 19th century in present day Long Beach took place. On the other hand, northern anchovy are one of the most abundant fish species in the Northeast Pacific, migrating in schools to fend off predators. They can be seen swimming all throughout the coastline near Long Beach.
