In the northeast corner of the East Garfield Park community area, an array of picturesque, nearly-continuous Queen Anne-style rowhomes (and a couple of workers’ cottages) line the 2600 – 2800 blocks of West Maypole Avenue.

At Jackson and Albany in East Garfield Park is Our Lady of Sorrows, one of three basilicas in the city. Like many churches and places of worship, the real effort in design and implementation went toward the inside rather than the outside of the structure.
The interior has one of the most spectacular displays of color, geometry, depth, and detail I’ve seen in a building.
This Victorian-style greystone consists of units that are 3 stories each with full basements. Its construction coincides with the establishment of the Sacramento station (closed and demolished in 1949) on the Lake Street elevated rail in early 1894.
