LA has 4 of the 10 steepest streets in the US

top-10-US-steepest-streets-1I use Waze a lot to try to avoid traffic (I totally recommend it), and yesterday while trying to get to work, it told me to go up Baxter street.  Little did I know that I was being directed up the 4th steepest street in the US (as reported by FIXR in this infographic).

 

 

 

 

I’ve driven by this street hundreds of times, and sort of knew about its existence, but check it out in Google StreetView:

I decided to also pull our oblique imagery for it as well:

This is right by the intersection of the 2 and 5 freeways, so if you come to downtown, go check them out!
