The stairs are about 147 steps. Located at Fair Oak View Terrace and Edendale Place in the Silver Lake, a district of Los Angeles. They are famous for where the Three Stooges short "An Ache In Every Stake" was filmed in 1941. It is a classic scene of where they have to deliver a block of ice all the way to the top of the stairs and with the stairs being so long, the block melts into a cube.

Three Stooges Stairs Reviews

A piece of nostalgia! Watch the movie “An Ache in Every Stake” before coming to the stairs. You can see what has changed and what has stayed the same. Simpler times and lots of fun! A bit steeper than some of the stairs around, but they have short landings, you can take a breather on.
