I just heard a fascinating item on the BBC World Service about the mysterious Los Angeles Stairs.

Here’s an LA Times article too. “L.A. is one of the best cities in the country when it comes to a number of tall, always accessible outdoor stairways. For a list of the Top 10 stairways around town, we talked to Charles Fleming, a Times editor and author of “Secret Stairs: A Walking Guide to the Historic Staircases of Los Angeles”….

Intriguing!

  1. Interesting article, but I was disappointed that the author didn’t include the amazing stairways in Silver Lake, where I used to live. (It’s a neighborhood next to Hollywood. Silver Lake is very hilly, but the stairs offered short cuts from one street to another. They were often partly disguised by heavy vegetation. Our neighborhood burgler even used them to escape from the cops!
