4. Angels Flight Funicular

Angels Flight funicular Downtown LA Untapped Cities

The Angels Flight funicular was built in 1901 to shuttle the rich Victorians who lived atop Bunker Hill down to the shops below. At the time, it cost a penny to ride. Dubbed “the shortest railway in the world,” it has worked on and off ever since. Every now and then, the city brings in goats to trim the grass on the hill nearby. The site was featured in 500 Days of Summer.
