If you are a fan of architecture and want to see a collection of Victorian houses in the heart of Los Angeles, check out the 1300 block of Carroll Avenue. It is located in Angelino Heights, one of the first suburbs of Los Angeles. Overlooking the downtown skyline, it rests East of Echo Lake and south of Dodger Stadium. Because the street is so unique, it has been the location for many film and television productions. The Los Angeles Conservatory holds walking tours of the area the 1st Saturday of every month. More information at The Los Angeles Conservatory website. Be sure to explore Angelino heights completely. The area is almost dream-like, yielding something interesting behind every turn. Below is a selection of houses from the 1300 block of Carroll Ave.
You might recognize the below from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” Video.
As you can see below, not every house is in pristine condition. This is where the nightmarish qualities of the neighborhood kick in!
