The stairs of East Rock Park

When Yale publicized its smoke-free campus initiative in the fall, I decided to sign up for the American Lung Association's Fight for Air Climb in remembrance of my grandmother, who passed away from lung cancer 10 years ago. The climb is a race/walk/run up 531 stairs in a neighboring apartment building on March 5th, and to get ready in the meantime I'll be climbing and documenting as many of New Haven's outdoor or public stairs as I can find.

Now, I don't imagine there'll be TOO many posts here since, let's face it, New Haven is pretty flat. But there are some nice ones in East Rock Park, a mile or two from home, and a few days ago I hopped on the scooter and gave them a climb, from the bottom to the top of the park: 

If you'd like to climb together or recommend some stairs, please get in touch. And if you'd like to donate to the cause, too, that'd be great--here's a link to my Fight for Air Climb profile page or just click on the button here:
