Hidden Staircases of Los Angeles

la stairs hollywood

Before Angelenos pledged their undying love to cars, we were a city connected by trolleys, buses, streetcars, and light rails. And how did people get from their houses in the hills to transit lines, schools or the local market? Stairs! Lots and lots of stairs. About 450 hidden historic stairways, built mostly in the 1920s, wind through LA’s steep hillside neighborhoods, many of them forgotten. Whether you enjoy a bit of cardio with your history or just fancy blazing a steep path where few have known to tread, the following is a small sampling of LA’s historic hidden staircases well worth the climb. =more=
