Long Beach officials have decided to challenge the 1990 census count in only six blocks of the city, claiming that census takers missed 269 residents. The limited challenge surprised community workers, who had estimated that up to 25,000 residents were overlooked. City officials say the census count came within 0.3% of their estimates. However, officials acknowledged that Long Beach lacks the computer and record-keeping systems that would enable it to prove whether there was an undercount.

When shopping center magnate Ernest Hahn began scouting Long Beach in 1975, he was struck by the city's natural beauty--and by its empty downtown shops. Business was slow even at the tattoo parlors and girlie shows on Ocean Boulevard. The Navy had left town, the Pike amusement park was in decline, the Red Cars had stopped running and the oil was running out. Across Queensway Bay, the Queen Mary, a costly municipal white elephant, sat rusting.
