Painful Public Steps for the Able-Bodied
Posted by:  Bon Vivant

Though not nearly as famous as the "Music Box Steps" located on Vendome Street (featured in the 1932 Oscar winning Laurel and Hardy short) the Swan Place Steps have a particular notoriety amongst serious exercisers, leaders of scavenger hunts, and a certain sadistic, yet gorgeous, private trainer. Silver Lake and Echo Park are teeming with public staircases nestled into the hills but the Swan Place Steps are perhaps the most difficult to navigate: three levels of aerobic hell. At the bottom of the first level you think to yourself, "No problemo, dude." When you've reached the second level you say, "I can probably do this," and once you look up at the third level you exclaim, "Holy crap!" Please consult your physician before even thinking about walking up these stairs.
