Outrigger Apartments
Pasadena, CA
The Outrigger Apartments retains a lot of nice details -- or at least they did. In 2008, just after these photos were taken, the place was remodeled and renamed the Huntington at Pasadena. The big tiki (shown top right) in front of the building has been removed. I'm not sure what's happened to the rest of the place. [map]
