City Steps

City Steps

Where you can’t build a road, but people still need to get there. Pittsburgh has hundreds of sets of city steps to get walkers up and down hills, and people still use them though we have so many cars. Many people still don’t have one, students who walk to school need them to shorten their walk, and people who catch buses need them if that’s as close as the bus comes to their home.

To prove that, these steps are new; to the left of them, overgrown, are the “old” steps, part concrete, part wood, that were just too worn out to repair anymore.
