These hilly towns have municipal steps that are a shortcut for walkers to and from their neighborhood to main streets. As tedious as these steps may appear they cut out about a half mile of walking uphill on several other streets just to reach the point at the top of the steps. Plus they are always interesting subjects to photograph.
These steps have been around for over 40 years and are still in good shape and are well-maintained and are in constant use. They were a hangout for kids when I was in high school, and when I shared this photo on Facebook I heard that the dings in the steps happened when someone rolled a manhole cover down the steps. Looking at it from this angle you can see its path.. . . . . . .
