"A Good Residential Street, but a Bit Too Busy"

Marin enters Albany at Tulare. Overall this is a very nice though overly busy residential street with nice, well kept middle class houses. Its got lots of trees and wide sidewalks, perfect for bicyclists or walking. There is a Montessori school at Carmel, which is easy to miss because it just looks like a regular house from the outside. The Albany Library and the Solano Community Church are just past the BART overpass at Masonic. There is another church at the corner of Stannage. There’s an ARCO and a Shell station at the corner with San Pablo.

Past San Pablo, Marin takes on a different character having on a Meridian and more of a barren, automobile heavy feel. Just past San Pablo there are offices and a fire station on the northern side and a long empty lot on the southern side. Just after this Marin merges into and becomes Buchanon.
