Stairway Stars 
 
Each stairway is rated from 1 star (poor condition, minimal length) to 5 stars (the longest, toughest, steepest stairways).  Stairways in particularly interesting locations are given an extra star; stairways in questionable neighborhoods or locations are given one less star than otherwise they would normally receive. 
There are 18 5-star stairways:
