The outrigger apartments still keep the polynesian decor up from what I could see from over the gates. Don't know if there are anymore tikis inside the gates. This is the only picture that I took at the Outrigger.

Excellent urban archeology -- that area on Rosemead is an incredible tiki spot, anchored by Bahooka's.

Sadly, several of the outriggers are gone.


But some still remain.
