East Sacramento and McKinley Park are highly sought after neighborhoods due partly to their central freeway location, proximity to the Midtown area and the State Capital corridor. East Sac home prices have seen the largest price appreciations relative to size of any area in Sacramento. Additionally the Midtown factor, an area which has seen an explosion in the number of fine dining offerings, monthly social events and public art and performance offerings, weighs heavily on the popularity of East Sac due in part to its relative ease of access to this area via bike, public transportation or just walking. Schools, community activities, a relative sense of security and the number of outdoor, social and recreational diversions make for a pleasant mix of outdoor offering that encourage and foster a strong sense of community. – Wikipedia

The Fabulous Forties neighborhood is part of the East Sacramento district. President Ronald Reagan lived at 1341 45th Street while serving most of his term as Governor of California. The “Fab ’40s” is the historic terminus of a once extensive streetcar network that covered nearly all the historic neighborhoods of the city. Forty-sixth street at J Street was the turnaround point for the J Street Line making it one of the widest streets in East Sacramento. The lots between 38th and 47th Streets and bordered by J Street and Folsom Boulevard are among the largest in East Sacramento, creating the concentration of larger houses that gave rise to the area’s name. Up until the Great Depression, the grand homes of the “Fab ’40s” were considered to be the modern-day equivalent of a suburban mansion. Now, they are considered architecturally spectacular large to mid-sized houses in a very pricey location. Additionally, the demand for larger and more modern housing has created an interesting surge in the number of remodels and multi-story additions throughout the McKinley Park and East Sacramento community. – Wikipedia
