It's not much to look at, this treeless commercial strip of auto-body shops and drive-through hamburger joints and dark convenience stores where the canned goods may be dusty but the liquor bottles gleam like the front window at Tiffany's. But Anaheim Street, which spills untidily across southern Long Beach, from the truck stops in the harbor district to the upscale Los Altos residential neighborhood, plays a crucial role in the city's commercial and cultural life.

Although it occasionally attracts Hollywood producers seeking a burned-out backdrop, the area of Wilmington just east of the Dominguez Channel isn't likely to appear in a Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce brochure any time soon.

City officials and business groups are lobbying to reverse a Metropolitan Transportation Authority vote to scuttle a $1.2-billion electric trolley system. The first leg of the system was scheduled to open in 1995 on 7th and Anaheim streets, a struggling commercial area where several businesses were looted during the 1992 riots.

Sithea San rejoiced when Long Beach officials designated a strip of Anaheim Street the nation's first Cambodia Town in 2007. The name would celebrate the largest Cambodian population center in the country and help revitalize the gritty neighborhood, she believed. San envisioned one day looking down Anaheim Street and seeing facades resembling ornate Cambodian temples; a large-scale shopping center where tourists could sample Cambodian cuisine and buy handcrafts; and even a museum outlining the history of Cambodian Americans in Long Beach.
