One of Silverlake's hidden secrets is its many painted staircases. Infamous among locals, they're often unknown and hard to discover for those passing through. While it's easy to get distracted by the hustle and bustle of Sunset Boulevard, I highly recommend taking a detour and going on a painted stair hunting adventure!
How to get there
N34° 05' 29.1228"W118° 16' 47.6904"
These stairs belong to the lovely home at 1063 Hyperion Avenue in Los Angeles, CA. They are just around the corner from LA's seen-and-be-seen hotspot, Sunset Junction.
Grab an Intelligentsia flat white, pop into The Cheese Store of Silverlake to sample one of their 300 cheeses, and then begin your walk East on Sunset Blvd past La Colombe. You'll make a right at Hyperion Avenue. Stop at first house on the right hand side and look up. You made it!
