Harbor City is a city located in Los Angeles County, California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 103,098. Harbor City is considered part of the Greater Los Angeles Area.

The city was founded in 1903 by Henry E. Huntington and his brother-in-law, George K. Porter as a resort town on the Pacific Ocean near Santa Monica Bay. The area was originally called Huntington Beach after Henry E. Huntington's father, Charles Cushing Huntington (1821-1892). In 1909, the brothers sold their interest in the town to Southern Pacific Railroad for $2 million and retired to their homes in Pasadena. The first hotel built in Harbor City was the Huntington Hotel which opened on October 1st 1903 with 50 rooms and a restaurant serving dinner only.

In 1906, an amusement park called "Ocean Park" opened on land leased from Henry E. Huntington and featured rides such as a roller coaster that went around a circular track at speeds up to 50 miles per hour (80 km/h). The park closed down after just two years due to financial difficulties but reopened briefly under new management as " Santa Monica Pier" before finally closing permanently in 1911 due to competition from other amusement parks such as Knott's Berry Farm which had opened nearby three years earlier.

In 1915, oil was discovered near Harbor City and within two years there were more than 1,000 wells operating in the area; this led to rapid growth for Harbor City as a center for oil production and petroleum refining until World War II when production decreased due to war efforts. After World War II ended however, new development began again with large apartment complexes being built and by 1970 Harbor City had become one of the most densely populated cities in Southern California with over 10,000 people per square mile (3,000/km²).

Today Harbor City is still an important center for business and commerce with many major companies having offices there including Chevron Corporation (the largest company headquartered in Harbor City), Bank of America Corporation (the second largest bank headquartered in Harbor City), Wells Fargo & Company (the third largest bank headquartered in HarborCity) and American Express Company (the fourth largest company headquarteredin HarbourCity).
