Carroll Avenue Review

Looking like a street lifted out of another era, the 1300 block of Carroll Avenue in Angelino Heights has the city's highest concentration of Victorian houses. Less than 10 minutes by car to both downtown and the Los Feliz/Silver lake neighborhoods, if you're in the vicinity it's worth a quick diversion by car.

As a designated historical district, it's no surprise the homes here are often rented for film shoots. Look for the Sessions House (No. 1330) and the Haunted House (No. 1345)—the latter seen in Michael Jackson's Thriller video. To get to Carroll Avenue from Downtown, take Temple Street west to Edgeware Road, turn right onto Edgeware, and go over the freeway. Carroll Avenue is on the left.
