Step Streets in New York City
There are steps that serve as pedestrian streets, extensions of streets, ways to move from point A to point B in New York City. Most are concentrated in the West Bronx and Upper Manhattan. And I will, a few flights at a time, photograph them and stick them here.
The rules? The steps should be useful for getting between two points, be public, and not lead into or out of a building. I will try to get several shots. I will give some neighborhood context. And a verbal description of the steps themselves. Mostly I will post the photos as regular blog posts, and just link them from this page. There is no rush. Sooner or later they will all end up here.
If some are missing, go ahead, tell me. And if you want to send in photos, I’m not proud. Really, any feedback is valuable. Go ahead, tell me something.
Eventually I will add a map of the city… but not sure how that will work yet. Something clickable would be nice, but there needs to be a few more steps first.

Van Cortlandt Park South from Gale Place to the intersection with Bailey Avenue, Van Cortlandt Avenue, and the Major Deegan Van Cortlandt Park South northbound on-ramp.
Also, what kind of teacher would I be if there wasn’t a link to that very famous steps puzzle?
