I'm writing to you about the fantastic article Ronald L. Soble wrote (Times, Feb. 24) about the steepest streets in the Los Angeles area.
Since I grew up in Los Angeles, I thought I would mention a few others that I have seen in Hollywood--Whitley Drive between Hollywood Boulevard and Hillside. In Westchester, 74th Street between Sepulveda Boulevard and La Tijera Avenue. In Manhattan Beach, Poinsettia Avenue between Manhattan Beach Boulevard and Marine Street, and Marine Street between Sepulveda Boulevard, and Highland Avenue and 19th Street between Sepulveda Boulevard and Highland Avenue.
But San Pedro and Miraleste and the Palos Verdes area have the most really tall, tall hilly streets that stand out in my memory.
Seventeenth, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd between Gaffey and the Miraleste District, Channel Street between the Harbor Freeway and the Los Angeles Harbor, and Gaffey Street between Palos Verdes Drive South and 28th Street. Thanks for the article, which helped jog my memory.
