Located on a neighborly street with annual block parties, just minutes to No. Berkeley BART, Westbrae and Solano shops, restaurants, high performing Albany K-12 schools, UC, parks & and all the amenities the east bay community has to offer.
This formerly working-class neighborhood once housed the pipe fitters, welders, and shipbuilders that worked for Henry Kaiser during World War II. Today, Albany is home to a diverse group of professionals who support the local schools with a passion.
Solano Avenue, with its incredible array of restaurants, independent cinema, and shopping, is proof that there's more to Albany than its stellar school system. And because Albany is small, flat, and sunny, it's a walkable neighborhood, with Solano Avenue a few blocks to the north and Westbrae shops, restaurants, nursery and beer garden a few blocks south west. Bakeries, boutiques, and bistros thrive on Solano Ave. The annual Solano Avenue Stroll, which takes place the second Sunday in September, shows off all 26 blocks -- from the Landmark Theaters Albany Twin theater, which shows an eclectic mix of first-run blockbusters to small, independent features, to the family-run Sunny Side Up cafe -- and is the perfect place to start your exploration of Albany.
