More Info

The "official" list was sent to me by the Seattle Department of Transportation, but they cautioned that it was still in draft form. You can download my Excel file with our corrections. The list does not include all the public stairs in parks or schools. We added many stairs to the list if they were open to the public and (in our opinion) they were "cool".

If you would like to browse just the photos, they are on Picasa.
