The Silver Lake Ave Public Staircase connects Silver Ridge Ave, Lake View Ave, Red Car Property, Riverside Place, Riverside Terrace and Allesandro Elementary School. It was a vital neighborhood link to the Red Car Trolley Stop at India. Today, the public staircase also connects the community to recreational opportunities on the Red Car Property.
