Living in Albany
Albany is located on the Eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, with views spanning across the Bay to the Golden Gate Bridge. Residents enjoy its almost flat walkable terrain—with the exception of Albany Hill, which rises to 338 feet above sea level.
Albany offers a great, pedestrian-friendly shopping street, Solano Avenue, with an eclectic mix of ethnic restaurants, pubs, clothing and gift stores and services. It is also home to Golden Gate Fields, the only horse-racing track in the area.
