After three or four years of avoiding the arduous climb whenever possible, I now usually take the stairs at 215th St and Broadway  when I have a choice. There are 110 of ‘em so it’s a challenge, but a welcome one after desk-jockeying all day.
This picture from 1916, taken from the East side of Broadway gives you a better idea of the climb.
What challenges do look forward to on your walks about town? Which ones do you avoid? I know I try to avoid the subway on treks of less than twenty blocks, though I’ll train it for less than ten in the rain.
