Angels Flight is like the landmark version of a cigarette: something many enjoyed back in the 20th century that has since proved dangerous. Sure, in a perfect world the five-foot, seven-inch-wide funicular on Bunker Hill could still chug us up a steep slope. But Sisyphean efforts to get the two cars on track have been more trouble than the railway’s practical value. Let’s keep it as a quirky relic and devote more energy to innovative transportation—like jet packs.
