This is stairwalk #11, downtown Los Angeles, from the book “Secret Stairs” by Charles Fleming. My friend and I rode the train from Universal City Walk to Pershing Square where we began the walk. It was interesting to see downtown and the parts I hadn’t seen before. The Angel Flight is up and running again after it was shut down in 2001 when the brakes went out and an 83 year old woman was killed. This was built in 1901 and carried passengers up the steep street to the top of Bunker Hill. You can either ride the Angel Flight up or take the stairs that run alongside it.
Downtown Los Angeles boasts a lot of interesting sculptures. The Rose Petal sculpture outside Disney Music Hall is a gift from architect Frank Gehry to Lillian Disney, wife of the late Walt Disney. Frank Gehry is the architect who designed Disney Music Hall.
These are the steps leading up to the central library.
