Hell of a Staircase

I’ve never seen a back staircase that goes all the way up to the second floor. I wonder if that is a fire safety thing?

  • Probably a condo thing.

  • Yup. It’s a condo thing; I live in another building in the complex. There’s four units in each building and you can see the bottom units have their own doors; the stairwell leads to the back doors of the top floor units.

  • I lived in an apartment on Independence SE between 17th and 18th. the entire block had those staircases. They were more of the rickety variety and did not have the little landing, but were rather straight down. My girlfriend was not too fond of it.
