Not a Public Staircase

A wonderful staircase curves up the hillside on Riverside Drive near Warren Animal Hospital. It is not a public staircase. It must have been built for a home long since gone on a Red Car Property adjacent lot. Throughout the neighborhood, people built staircases on private property so residents could more easily access the Red Car Trolley, rather than walking further to a public staircase.

Trivia: there is an original concrete property line marker at the rear of this lot marking the Red Car Property line.
