Cross to right side and descend toward downtown Pittsburgh skyline. Just past Niles St., at 2735 Sumner, is a set of wood steps on the right. Drop down 4 steps to sidewalk. Rebuilt in 2012, the concrete walk continues below grade as it drops 27 steps along the right side of Sumner. Notice these homes sit below street level. Sets of wooden steps rise to the street. It’s a feature of streets scattered about the Slopes. Take in the view of downtown as you descend to Oakley Way. Here, the lots have widened into yards with gardens and fruit trees.
