From walking in the course of the vintage l. a. Loma local in Pasadena to strolling the sundown Junction Loop in Silver Lake, to taking the Beachwood Canyon hike via “Hollywoodland” to having fun with the brilliant ocean perspectives from the Castellammare district in Pacific Palisades, Secret Stairs takes you on a journey of the staircases all around the urban of Angels.
The round walks, rated for length and hassle, carry stories of old houses and their interesting population, bits of surprising neighborhood trivialities, and tales of the neighborhoods surrounding the steps. That’s the place William Faulkner used to be dwelling while he wrote the screenplay for To Have and feature Not; that condominium was once designed by way of Neutra; over there's a Schindler; that’s the place Woody Guthrie lived, the place Anais Nin died, and the place Thelma Todd was once murdered . . .
Despite the truth that this type of staircases starred in an Oscar-winning brief film—Laurel and Hardy’s The tune Box, from 1932—these civic treasures were nearly unknown to lots of the city’s citizens and viewers. Now, Secret Stairs places those hidden stairways again at the map, whereas introducing city hikers to intriguing new “trails” everywhere in the urban of Los Angeles.
