A lot of
people email me from all over the word (literally) asking about The
Pike and what it's like today. So, I took my trusty digital camera down
and took some pictures. As you can see on subsequent pages, it's not
the Old Pike but it is very interesting. They've done a good job of
combining some of the old and a lot of the new. They have been
respectful of the Old Pike tieing in with the new design.

understand will house the Long Beach History Museum. Meanwhile the
archives and offices are in a temporary facility downtown where they
still hold public hours.
