The Stairs in Santa Monica

February 16, 2009

Santa-Monica-StairsYou’re looking at The Stairs in Santa Monica, a popular place where West L.A. residents exercise. Two public stairways — each with more than 100 stairs — go up and down a hill not far from an “extremely historic” cemetery filled with people who ate some bad peaches at a party in 1909. No, really.

The area has been in the news recently as wealthy, local residents are becoming tired of people using the area as an outdoor gym. For now, it seems relations between the exercisers and the local residents have calmed a bit.
