The steps used to descend on two landings. We used to run up and down on the other side for exercise. They are more narrow now, too. The cliffs we used to climb them as kids. The building I grew up in that you see bits of is 365 E 183st the building the infamous Larry Davis got captured in. That building is huge and has a maze of stairways. A shame the building is really nice. I grew up in a duplex apartment with a balcony and a sit down dining room. If that building ever goes Coop or Condo I am running to get my old apartment.

I love step streets (on the way down anyway)! The stairs on West 229th St were reconstructed (finished in the spring I think) and look swanky too.

According to the article the change in elevation is 63 feet, and there are 2 other staircases (smaller ones) to get to Sedgewick Ave from Heath Avenue. Going up is no joke but it's quick to get to Inwood or Target from Kingsbridge Heights.

I wonder if anyone has pics of the old ones. 183 st and Webster and the area around it is truly a wild area. I grew up seeing the worst dysfunction and violence the City has to offer. You have seen the area, you know. But many amazing beautiful and kind things as well. We can never just dismiss a communities people because of the bad element present there.
Wow those look so cool
