Gimme Shelter

Along the Los Angeles River are invisible cities whose population centers do not figure on official maps. The river's littered banks have become a no-man's land for the homeless the hardcore junkies, the mentally ill and those just trying  to disappear. A dozen or so people live in tents and lean-tos under the  7th Street bridge in Long Beach, just one of the many invisible villages along the river.
